By UA Hockey, 09/12/16, 11:15AM MDT


Eric Holton, a Tucson native who attended Sahuaro High School, graduated from the University of Arizona 1997 with a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. He currently resides in Tucson, AZ., where you can find him playing various acoustic music acts around town.

Eric joined the Cats after completing the inaugural year of the WSHL (Western States Hockey League) with the Arizona Bandits in 1996.  After playing 2 years with the Wildcats, Eric moved on to a brief stay with the Tucson Gila Monsters of the WCHL (West Coast Hockey League).  

Since his college days, Eric has held a career in retail at Sam Levitz Furniture while most recently celebrating his 18th year anniversary with the company.  He remains very active in the hockey community-playing in adult leagues at the TCC-as well as running a small business in hockey apparel (OK Goalie) found on the GGSU Facebook group. Eric continues to be an active member and contributor to both the alumni and current Wildcat Hockey team.

On behalf of the University of Arizona Hockey program, we would like to extend our most sincere thank you for all of Eric’s support and continued contributions to the Wildcat Hockey program!

See you on alumni weekend Eric!
