Thousands of Muskegon hockey fans remember the old pro days of the Mohawks, Lumberjacks and Fury.

Ron Rop remembers, too. He was the Muskegon Chronicle’s hockey beat writer for nearly 30 years, and has a lot of great memories about the players, coaches and fans that flocked to the L..C Walker Arena over the years.

Check out Rops’ pro hockey memories below. The story was originally published in the January edition of the Local Sports Journal magazine, which is available for free at selected area retail outlets and restaurants.
