Shane Gersich, a black ace from the Capitals 2018 championship team, sends Hershey to Calder Cup Finals
The Hershey Bears are going to the Calder Cup Finals after 26-year-old veteran, Shane Gersich, scored the series-winning goal — his first of the 2023 playoffs — to eliminate the Rochester Americans in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Gersich, a black ace from the Washington Capitals’ 2018 Stanley Cup championship run, is no stranger to big moments. As a member of the University of North Dakota’s hockey team, Gersich scored in the National Championship game against Quinnipiac, helping the Fighting Hawks capture the 2016 NCAA Division 1 National Championship.
