Congratulations to Ian Roach and Joseph Pergolizzi, two Tampa area high school senior hockey players, who were honored at the Tampa Bay Lightning game on March 13, 2014 by the Dave Andreychuk Foundation and the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation. Both were chosen as recipients of the Dave Andreychuck Scholarship for 2014! Roach and Pergolizzi were among local high school seniors who were introduced to the fans at the game during the second intermission.
