Commemorative Jersey for “Coach”
Submitted By Lynda Carusi on Thursday, November 26, 2020
On November 25 the NMHA was proud to present Mrs. Linda Kelly with a commemorative jersey honoring her late husband Kirk ‘Coach’ Kelly. Assisting the NMHA President Lynda Carusi, was our HL Alternate VP for the Junior divisions, Joey Wilson. Kirk was a huge influence in Joey’s life.

Prior to Joey becoming a player for the Newmarket Hurricanes, he was coached by Kirk and was inspired to volunteer as a NMHA Executive member as a way of giving back to his community, as Kirk had done throughout his life. 




Many will ask why #5? #5 was Kirk’s jersey number when he grew up as a hockey player. It was simply, his number and it became his son’s number as well while Martin grew up playing hockey in the NMHA.

 On behalf of the NMHA, we want to thank Mrs. Kelly and the entire Kelly family for their grace and humility in these difficult and challenging times.
