At 94, Mark Sertich has a love for hockey that defies his age, maybe even logic. Sertich doesn’t just like watching the game – he plays it – in regular pick-up games in his hometown of Duluth. He often skates circles around players more than half his age.
Sertich has earned some much-deserved local and national attention for his unbelievable on-ice accomplishments. The Duluth News Tribune profiled Sertich over the summer and, in October, CBS News featured him in a wonderfully done “On the Road with Steve Hartman" segment. Sertich told Hartman, “I so enjoy what I’m doing.”
