The Freedom Fighters Hockey team was organized in 2012 to help raise both money and awareness for The New England Center and Home for Veterans, located in Boston Mass. Founder and team captain, Frank Scioli of Stoneham Mass., was inspired to form the team after seeing the difficult challenges his father-in-law faced while trying to get services and support—veterans’ benefits—for serious health issues. The Freedom Fighters will celebrate their fifth anniversary on April 1, 2017 at 7:00 p.m., playing The Boston Bruins Alumni Team at the Stoneham, Mass Arena. This annual event has featured Bruins players such as Ray Bourque, Rick Middleton and Terry O'Reilly; and The Freedom Fighters do a great job challenging “the pro’s.” We invite you to help support our Boston-area veterans by purchasing tickets. All proceeds benefit The New England Center and Home for Veterans.
