NORTHBOROUGH – The Algonquin men’s hockey team continued their tradition of wearing camo jerseys to honor the memory of Brian Arsenault of Northborough this week.
They wore their alternate shirts for their game against Groton Dunstable on Thursday, paying homage to Arsenault while the students also wore red, white and blue attire.

He completed his basic training in 2011, graduating from the Airborne School at Ft. Benning in 2012. Arsenault received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and Army Commendation Medal among many other honors.
Groton Dunstable beat Algonquin 6-5 in this final game.
