PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Providence College men's hockey team held its annual Alumni Golf Tournament on Friday, Aug. 15 at the Pawtucket Country Club in Pawtucket, R.I.
Led by Providence College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P.'80 and Head Coach Nate Leaman, over 125 golfers participated in the event, which included alumni from each decade since the 1960's. Many current players were also on hand and red-shirt junior co-captain Noel Acciari (Johnston, R.I.) started the event with a ceremonial first tee shot.

Several NHL players and staff members also teed it up including Hal Gill '97, Colin McDonald '07, Mark Fayne '10, Boston Bruins Executive Director of Player Personnel John Ferguson '89, Calgary Flames President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke '77 and New Jersey Devils Sr. Vice President of Hockey Operations Chris Lamoriello '94.
