From time to time Dave Ellis (fill-in color commentator for Michigan Tech hockey) finds treasures from years past out of TV6’s archives and posts them on his personal YouTube page. Last week he uncovered this feature produced by TV6 following John MacInnes’ retirement in 1982.

MacInnes reflects on his career as the Michigan Tech head hockey coach and expresses his confidence in the future of the program. Though things may have not gone as planned, Mel Pearson, a former player under MacInnes, has led the rebuilding of the storied hockey program.
