NHL 2021 Most Valuable Hockey Family!
The Owen family of Homer has won the NHL Most Valuable Hockey Family award, adding another accolade to their trophy case right next to the Homer High School hockey team’s 2021 state championship trophy.
The NHL Most Valuable Hockey Family award is given out annually and is an opportunity to recognize outstanding parents, guardians, and mentors in the youth hockey community.
Chris Owen is a hockey coach in Homer along with his wife Joanna. The two got married after years of coaching with each other. Chris’s daughter Haylee Owen is no stranger to the ice either, having played hockey in Homer for several years, including on this year’s state championship team.
