The Northbrook Bluehawks PW 2 hockey team is made up of boy and girls ages 10-12. These are kids from Northbrook and surround towns that play in the Northern Illinois Hockey League. The team is asked every year to volunteer for a cause as part of giving back to the community. This year it was decided to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country, show our appreciation and let their families know they are not forgotten.
