TOLEDO CHEROKEE TO HOST “SAP GAME” (THIS FRIDAY VS WOOSTER)

Toledo OH:      The Toledo Cherokee are proud to announce that the third annual “Sap Game” will take place this Friday when the Cherokee play host to the Wooster Oilers. Face off is set for 7:00PM.

Ken “Sap” Miller was co-owner of the Team Toledo Ice House as well as President of the Toledo Cherokee Junior hockey team. Sap as he was known by everyone whoever met him passed away four years ago. The Cherokee continue to honor him every season.

The team will be selling “SAP” t-shirts as well as holding a 50/50 drawing and other events throughout the evening. All proceeds will go to the “SAP Memorial Foundation” which helps local youths with tuition to either GTAHA’s Learn to Skate Program or the ADM Program.

All GTAHA players will receive FREE admission by wearing a CHEROKEE jersey to the game.

“This game means a lot to our organization as well as my family, Sap was not only a great man who I think about every day and I know he would be honored to know we are continuing to share his legacy every season with our Sap game.” Said head coach Kenny Miller

In his more than 30-year coaching career, Sap worked with teams including the Toledo Junior Storm, Toledo IceDiggers and our Toledo Cherokee. His love of hockey blossomed early, playing as a child with close friend Tony Parker. The pair later coached together. That love was passed down to his sons, whose teams Mr. Miller coached throughout their childhoods. Kelly played professional hockey with the Toledo Storm and now coaches the 2007 Toledo Cherokee team.

“He was a loyal guy,” Miller said, adding that his father built strong relationships with players and their families. “It showed in how much the kids at the rink meant to him.”

“He was a great ambassador for hockey in Toledo,” said Don Manders, vice president of the Greater Toledo Amateur Hockey Association and current President of the Cherokee. He met Sap when he coached his son Jake, who now helps coach youth hockey at the Ice House. “Sap was really invested in youth hockey, Manders said. He was a larger-than-life figure and not exactly a quiet guy.”

He would work into the wee hours, fixing items at the Ice House so it would be ready for young skaters in the morning.

“He had the mind-set that hockey is the greatest sport in the world,” Manders said. “He worked tirelessly for it.”

Please come out this Friday as the Cherokee honor Sap and make the push towards the USPHL Great Lakes Division Playoffs.
