103-year-old fan to celebrate birthday with Coyotes on Thursday

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Marion Clark of Chandler will celebrate her 103rd birthday on Thursday as a special guest of the Arizona Coyotes and FOX Sports Arizona for the Coyotes’ game against the Minnesota Wild.

Clark will watch the game from the FOX Sports Arizona suite along with 14 family members and friends, including two grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Coyotes mascot Howler will present Marion with a Coyotes "GRAM" jersey, and she will lead the Coyotes fans in a howl just before puck drop.

Clark is a lifelong hockey fan who moved to Arizona in the mid-1990s. She previously lived in Hartford, Conn., where she attended many Hartford Whalers games in the 1980s when Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett played for the team.
