It is with deep sadness that the Croatian Hockey Federation reported the sudden death of Ivan Hrupec. The 66 year-old was a hockey official, a former International Umpire of the FIH grade, a hockey player and the member of the HK Zelina as the good ghost for the many generations.

The FIH and the Croatian Hockey Federation would like to extend its sincerest sympathy to his family and HK Zelina and is always with them. The funeral ceremony was held at the Saint John Zelina cemetery on Saturday 5th May. Many friends and relatives had been united in that mournful procession.

Thanks to Ivan for everything that he contributed to our sport.
