Hockey Players Remember Friend Lost in Car Accident
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- It was a chance for friends to remember a good friend while playing a game they love in Kennewick.
This weekend friends of Brian Clark, who was killed in a 2006 car accident, gathered at the Toyota Arena to remember Clark in a memorial hockey tournament.
Clark was 22 at the time of the accident. He loved hockey and so his friends put on the tournament to remember him and raise money for the Safe Harbor Crisis Nursery.
Five teams came this year to compete in the tourney and they hoped to raise a $1,000.
This is the third annual tournament and friends say it is the best way they can honor Clark's memory.
"He was a good guy to hang out with, a good guy all around," said Clark's friend Dustin Boddy. "It was a very unfortunate situation and this is the best way for us to remember him. We want to remember him as he was, in his element, playing hockey, all of his friends, all of his buddies. There is no better way of doing that than to get all together on a summer weekend and have a heck of a time."
