Stoneham High School honors fallen teammate with run to state title game

As you can witness in the moving video above, the Stoneham High School hockey team made a spirited run after the passing of teammate James Luti, who was just 16.

Following Luti’s passing, the team honored his memory during their run to the state championship game, where they fell in overtime. Along the way, the team grew close to Luti’s family, considering Maria and John their “second set of parents.” The NHL took notice of this heartwarming story, bringing the Stanley Cup to his former teammates during their run.

It’s a fantastic story in case you missed it this past weekend.

Luti’s family created the JL11 Fund in his honor, with the goal of “supporting teens and young adults, like James, in navigating their mental health.”
