St. Cloud State University celebrated the collegiate and professional playing career of former Husky hockey standout Bret Hedican on Nov. 6 by retiring his No. 24 from the program. In an emotional pre-game ceremony at the National Hockey Center, Hedican was joined in the on-ice ceremony by St. Cloud State President Earl H. Potter III, former St. Cloud State head coach Craig Dahl, members of his family and several of his former teammates from his playing days at St. Cloud State. Hedican's number is the first retired in the history of the hockey program at St. Cloud State. He played for the Huskies from 1988-91, and then went on to play in the National Hockey League from 1991- 2009. He helped Carolina win a Stanley Cup championship in 2006, and was also on the USA men's hockey team at the Winter Olympic games in 1992 and 2006.
