How we continue to honor Nick?
All players in the league wear the #12 emblem on the front of their jerseys. This is an ongoing recognition that one of their peers is no longer physically on the team, but is still greatly a part of this organization.
GLYSA engages with Nick's family to promote and support annual events such as:
"Let's Light the Night for Super Nick" occurs each Septebmer and promotes Childhood Cancer Awareness month. All proceeds from this event go toward the Neuroblastoma Foundation in Nick's memory.
UMass Lowell River Hawks Hockey annually host a "Super Nick Night" fundraiser game. Many GLYSA parents and players attend in support. Proceeds go towards the Super Nick Memorial Fund. Nick was adopted to the River Hawks in October of 2011 through Team IMPACT (Inspire, Motivate, and Play Against Challenges)
Additionally, the league contributes a portion of the procedes raised during the annual GLYSA Golf Tournament to the Super Nick Memorial Fund.

Annually, Nick's family provides a scholarship to a GLYSA player.
