Olympic Regional Development Authority

On Saturday the 1980 Olympic Hockey team will return to Lake Placid for a special celebration.

Officials in Lake Placid are planning a 35th anniversary event to commemorate the Miracle on Ice at the 1980 Winter Olympics.  All 19 players will be at the Herb Brooks Arena Saturday night according to ORDA Spokesman Jon Lundin.  "This is the first time in 35 years that the entire 1980 USA Hockey team will be back in Lake Placid as a single group since they left this little town with Olympic gold medals around their neck.”

The multimedia program with the hockey team occurs Saturday night at the Olympic Center.
