Plus, we both continue to have a love for the game of Ice Hockey," said Sheehan.

“It is an honor to continuously partner with Operation Hat Trick. As an American business, it is a privilege to support those who have served our wonderful country and give back to them with proceeds of our exclusive collection going to MACV.” - Tom Sega, President and CEO of Duluth Pack.
