APRIL/MAY 2018 USAHOCKEYMAGAZINE.COM // 39 Nash is currently in jail facing multiple charges, while these hockey heroes received a n a w a r d f r o m t h e W i s c o n s i n V i c t i m s / Witness Professionals Association. Still, any mention of their heroism is quickly deflected as the men say they were simply in the right place at the right time. " We were just following Kevin's lead," Theisen said. "If he doesn't park his car in front of the victim's car, they're gone. I'm just glad we were able to help out and make sure that this [guy] didn't get away." "It was crazy," Lemanski added. "I still can't believe it happened. But I'm glad we were there to help." The three returned to Eagle River this year and helped lead Ale Asylum to the finals of the 30+ Silver Division. The incident made for a good postgame story sitting with friends and teammates on Dollar Lake, but for the most part the events of a year earlier seldom cross their minds. "Not unless you're at the grocery store and you see someone that you haven't seen in a while, 'Oh, hey, you hero,'" Weber said. But the guys don't look at themselves that way. They did what any good hockey player would do— read, react and rescue someone in need of help. "You see something going on," Weber said, "you've got to do the right thing." P Greg Bates is a freelance writer based in Green Bay, Wis. Kevin Weber and Brent Theisen receive commendations from the Wisconsin Victim Witness Professionals Association for their heroic actions in February 2017. Jordan Lemanski was unable to attend. Members of the Ale Asylum squad continue to be formidable foes at the Labatt Blue/ USA Hockey Pond Hockey National Championships, making it to the finals of this year's 30+ Silver Division.
