College Hockey:
Hodgkin’s Return Sidelines Holy Cross’ Crane

— Holy Cross forward Glen Crane will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a recurrence of Hodgkin’s Disease. The second-year freshman missed the entire second semester last season after being diagnosed with the cancer, but underwent chemotherapy that was believed to have put the disease into remission.

Last season, Crane played in only four games for the Crusaders before being sidelined by illness. This year, Crane played in Holy Cross’ exhibition loss to St. Nick’s, and the opener of a two-game series at Air Force.

Crusaders coach Paul Pearl showed obvious disappointment in losing Crane.

“He was one of my best forwards in the first two weeks of practice,” said Pearl. Crane scored a goal in the opening exhibition game.

In tribute to their teammate, Crusaders players will shave their heads for this weekend’s games at Mercyhurst and Canisius. Crane began chemotherapy treatments yesterday.
