Fundraiser held for Old Town-Orono hockey player

ORONO, Maine. (WABI)- Old Town Orono Hockey is having a great season, but they are missing one of their players.

Last month, Dylan Street was recovering at Boston Children's Hosptial from a serious infection and surgery.

A fundraiser called Skating Strides was held to support his road to recovery at the Alfond Arena.

Community members gathered to support Street by participating in a silent auction, dinner, and skating.

"I just can't believe that so many people have come up to the plate and we got so many different fundraisers going and it's just unreal. Just spending time with my teammates because I haven't in a long time and it's just nice to talk to them."

The fundraiser is to help offset medical costs.

Street hopes to be back with his team as soon as he can.
