Memorial Tribute game for Jamie Mertens - January 9th

Jamie Mertens loved many things, including his wife Stacey and their two sons, Logan (Bri Basolo) and Kaine (Sydney Lavey). Both boys played for the Ledger hockey team; Logan graduated in 2014, while Kaine graduated in 2017. Jamie grew up playing baseball, but shared the love of hockey with his family – including his parents and in-laws who also became Ledger hockey fans.


Unexpectedly, Jamie passed away on July 6, 2019, however his love for family, friends, baseball and Ledger Hockey lives on!
