The Mike Kelly Award
Mike Kelly (December 31, 1968 - August 9, 1986) died in a car accident. Mike was a devoted hockey player who started playing hockey in 1975 at the age of 6, and developed into an outstanding goalie through all the age levels he participated. On occasion, he also played as a forward or defensemen.
At the time of his passing, Mike was going to start his senior year at Glenwood High School where he played on the football team. He was the son of Dennis and Velma Kelly, who were devoted hockey parents and supported Springfield Youth Hockey and rarely missed any of Mike's games at home or away. Mike also left an older sister, Colleen.
Each year Springfield Youth Hockey Association awards an outstanding midget player who is devoted to the game both on and off the ice in the memory of Mike Kelly. Kelly's jersey is encased and on display at the Nelson Center in Lincoln Park.
