You know...That for the first 4 years of Sioux City hockey, we didn't have a Zamboni!!!
Left: An Auditorium staff member preparing the edges by hand. No gas edger yet!!! Right: Staff members shovel away all the snow
from the ice. As tradition, this was done at the start of every game and between every period.
Two hot water carts sponsored by the Black Knight, a men's clothing store located in Sioux City and owned by then team owner
Gary Lipschutz, provided the hot water that prepared the ice for the next period. Note: Notice the fence in place of glass.
Sioux City Eagles
Circa Late 60's
These picture just screams "Old Time Hockey". Taken in the upstairs locker room at the Audi, this photos shows several of the
Sioux City Eagle players either before or during one of their home games. Picture two, second from the right, is long-time
Siouxland Youth Hockey (SYHA) coach and referee Joe Pinard.
The Sioux City Eagles take on a team from West St. Paul in the tilt at the Auditorium. This photo is takes at the "stage" end of the
rink. Visible in the back is the door to the outer locker-room as well as the rope pulleys used to run the various stage equipment.
Note the fence for glass and the real boards.
Billy Danderand Cup
Held in honor of long time Sioux City Musketeer trainer & equipment manager Billy Danderand. A native of Jefferson, S.D., Billy has been part
of the Musketeer organization for 40 seasons!!! He joined the team during the Musketeers first season in USHL Senior League in 1972.
Billy also served the same duties with International Softball Congress's powerhouse teams Penn Corps & National Health Care.
This trophy is awarded to the winning team of the annual Musketeer's All-Star Summer Camp Green vs. Gold try-out game.
**********Can You ID This Team
This team jacket color and style was probably worn during the early or mid 80's. The Musketeer logo on the front is screened and
the player number on the shoulder is sewn. The yellow material is a flat luster nylon material. I need your input if you have
any idea what season this was from.
