It’s now Karen Drewiske Memorial Arena
Family, friends and fans of the late Karen Drewiske gathered at the Hudson Civic Center Sunday afternoon as the Hudson Hockey Association hosted a celebration to rename its Raider Arena, “Karen Drewiske Memorial Arena.”
Drewiske, who died Feb. 19 after a courageous battle with cancer, was known as Hudson’s Hockey Mom, and was active with the Hudson Hockey Association, as well as the Benchwarmer’s Club, Raider Boosters Club and many other civic organizations.
Pictured at the unveiling of the new sign at the rink are the Drewiske family; Karen’s mom Amanda Gliniecki, in front, and in back from left, husband David, children Jake, Maddie, Kit and Davis, and Davis’ wife Megan. Davis Drewiske is a former University of Wisconsin and National Hockey League player.
