Kukla's Korner Hockey

All Red Berenson

from Tony Khing of Hockey 411 at Sharks.com,

However on this day, Berenson isn’t wearing a suit. He’s not standing in the corridors of the Yost Ice Arena. He’s in a T-shirt and shorts, has a baseball cap on his head and is talking outside Locker Room No. 2 at Snoopy’s Home Ice in Santa Rosa. Berenson is about to play in a late morning game for the University of Michigan 65s at the 36th annual Snoopy Senior World Hockey Tournament.

The man known as “The Red Baron” may be 71 and playing just for fun, but he still has that competitive fire.

One would think you’d like to take a break from hockey. After all, the NCAA season and all you do as a head coach is quite stressful
.
This is a break for me. It’s a lot more fun playing hockey than coaching hockey. It really is a break. I really enjoy it a lot and it’s the only time I really play hockey.

When your players learn about your summertime hockey fix, what’s their reaction?

They like that. They know I’m a fitness person. They know I’m concerned about conditioning. But it sets a good example. They know I’m still serious about the game. I’ve had some players drive up from San Francisco to see us play.
