Aces Season Ticket Holder Climbs Kilimanjaro

Ryan Hill poses in his Alaska Aces jersey and stocking cap at 19,340 feet on the summit of Uhuru peak on Mount Kilimanjaro whose summit he reached on Oct. 2.

He and his wife, Lisa, are Aces season ticket holders.

Hill is the second person with an ECHL connection to make the 37-mile trek up Africa’s highest mountain. Former ECHL broadcaster and current NHL Network producer/host Rob Simpson and Boston Bruins All-Star Zdeno Chara, who was visiting with international humanitarian organization Right To Play, made the trip in July.
