DJHA Mourns The Loss Of One Of Our Alumni

The entire Dallas Penguins family is deeply saddened by the loss of one of our 2015 Alumni, Calvin Stewart. Calvin and his family were members of DJHA for several years. "Stewy" as he was known by his fellow Penguins, was part of the core group of ’97 players and valued team member on Coach Clymer’s 2014-15 18U AA team and Coach Mewett’s 2013-14 16U AA team who advanced to the USA Hockey Nationals in 2014 and again in 2015. Calvin and his teammates finished 3rd in their division and returned home with Bronze medals and Championship banners both years. The Nationals banners that bear Calvin's name are proudly displayed at the Dr. Pepper Starcenter Plano and also pictured in the background on our website. Calvin graduated from Plano West High School in 2015 and was attending the Macombs School of Business at The University of Texas in Austin. In January this year, Calvin returned home to participate in the 2nd Annual DJHA Alumni Game. 

Calvin Stewart will be remembered by all throughout the DFW hockey community as a great friend, a supportive teammate, and a worthy opponent. Our Board of Directors, coaches, players & parents, both past and present, continue to keep the Stewart family in our thoughts and prayers.

Calvin will be dearly missed.
