  • Alois “Porky” Penzenstadler - 1986
Alois "Porky" Penzenstadler of Oshkosh, and his brother, Frank, organized and sponsored the first ice hockey team and program in Oshkosh.

Penzenstadler was the catalyst in the Oshkosh team's success because he was a "good" manager and his ability as an outstand­ing player was superior to any other player in the 1920s and 1930s..

He was a strong, powerful skater, exceedingly deceptive and an excellent stick handler.

Penzenstadler sold authorities in Oshkosh on building an outside hockey rink and person­ally conducted a senior hockey program as well as a youth hockey program from 1928 into the 1940s.
