Olympic Gold Medalist and Hockey Legend Mike
Eruzione to Deliver Keynote Address at Auto Glass Week
June 16, 2011
Auto Glass Week is delighted to announce that hockey legend
Mike Eruzione will address attendees at the Memphis Marriott Downtown
in Memphis, Tenn., on September 16, 2011. The keynote address will
take place Friday morning during the event. Eruzione will speak
on teamwork and the necessary steps to be successful.
Eruzione served as the captain who led the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey
Team to its improbable Gold Medal victory in Lake Placid, N.Y. Most
memorable was the moment that Eruzione scored the game-winning goal
against the unbeaten Soviet Union team to advance to the medal round.
Being dubbed the greatest sports achievement of the 20th century,
this story was later immortalized on film in the 2004 movie, "Miracle."
"Mike understands how important teamwork and persistence are,
so he's well-suited to present the keynote address. I'm sure our
attendees will be inspired by his life experiences both on and off
the ice," says event director Holly Biller. "We also want
to thank all of the sponsors who have helped to make this event
a success and bring in such a wonderful keynote speaker."
After the spectacular Olympic victory, Eruzione spent several years
in New York and New Jersey as a commentator for the Madison Square
Garden Communications Network. He provided coverage of the New York
Rangers and New Jersey Devils games and also did special interviews
with players and coaches for many years.
For the past several years, Eruzione has traveled throughout the
United States for major corporations and organizations as a motivational
speaker and sports promoter. He also is the director of alumni programs
at Boston University and remains actively involved in fundraising
events for the U.S. Olympic Committee as well as many charities
and youth programs.
In addition to Eruzione's keynote address, Auto Glass Week will
feature educational seminars, an exhibition area with suppliers,
the Sixth Annual Walt Gorman Memorial Windshield Repair Olympics
and the Sixth Annual Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician
This is one of the largest international events dedicated to the
auto glass industry. Registration and competition details are available
