Here is the Story:
"This fundraiser is being held in Scott Empey's honor. All funds raised will be donated directly to Tri-County Youth Hockey in order to assist youth hockey families to offset their league fees. The first time that I met Scott Empey, I was a 7 year-old and I was just getting started playing hockey. My dad worked alongside Scott at Kodak and invited him to help get me outfitted. As we walked into Locker Room Sports, we were greeted by Graham and Scott made sure that I had the basics covered. That was when the love of hockey began. Scott and his family later moved to Brockport and he volunteered as a coach with Tri-County; that is when I learned how a coach can truly impact the players on their team. Over the next 30 plus years, every step of my hockey future was guided by both my father and Scott; I grew to love the game under their tutelage and took their teachings with me. I later followed in their footsteps and volunteer coached at Tri-County. To this day, some of my former players only refer to me as ‘coach’ as we share the ice…it is one of my favorite moments and makes me think of Scott every time it happens. To quote the NHL’s 24/7 episode, “the best thing about being a hockey player is a phenomenon that emerges from a collection of connections encompassing the very first figures who guided them onto the ice and the single minded towers who never stopped trying to make them better.” Every stride on the ice, every bead of sweat, and every written practice plan has been done in Scott’s image. I know that I will carry Scott’s legacy with me for the rest of my life. You will be missed ‘coach.’"
