November 11, 2014 marks a day that Framingham Youth Hockey Program has lost an icon. John Hart, the longest serving member of the FYHP Board of Directors has passed away. Most will remember John working with the beginner program, teaching skating skills to young children and mentoring the up and coming coaches for 40 plus years.
