Meet Our Bozeman Team


Owner, Coach, Player: Kraska (since 2005)

Graduating from high school in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Kraska moved to Bozeman in 1987 to attend college at Montana State University. Raising 4 kids who all played hockey, soccer, football, lacrosse, track and more, he realized the value of trading quality used gear. 

In the fall of 2004, Kraska left his wildlife biology research position at MSU to open a small (10ft x 15ft) shop called Panzer Hockey shop, located at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds, that offered skate sharpening and new and used hockey gear.  It was a fun winter hanging out at the rink all day, every day, but the business had to grow; Play It Again Sports was opened the next fall (2005).

For Kraska, the best part of owning Play It Again Sports is the fun of outfitting young kids and their families. Second to that is helping grow healthy community activities by partnering with area sports leagues and schools, making the Gallatin Valley a better place to live.


                                            Head Coach: John Acheson (since 2011)

Mike McTernan (since 2013) 

Players: Jess, Jake, Michael, Preston, Ellen and Terry!
