Seniors Will Ham (20), Captain Joe Sullivan (22), and Grady Harrington (23) took part in the pregame celebrations honoring seniors and their parents for their 4 years of hard work and dedication to the Hingham High School Hockey program. Sullivan dressed for in what was mostly likely his last time with his teammates on the ice last night. He had to "retire" from hockey a few weeks back due to continuous injuries. Even though he is not physically on the ice, he is still an influential leader off the ice.
Donned in their custom Hingham Hockey jerseys, "The Mutants" are the Harbormen's own personal cheering section at almost every game, home and away. They are mostly seniors and should also be recognized for their amazing dedication to the team throughout the season.
