Every living member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team will gather in Lake Placid, N.Y., on the 35-year anniversary of the Miracle on Ice this weekend, Lake Placid officials announced Monday.

It’s the first time all living players will be together in Lake Placid since they won gold at the 1980 Winter Games.

The anniversary of the U.S. 4-3 win over the Soviet Union is Sunday. A Relive the Miracle celebration is set for Saturday in the same arena that housed that game.

The evening will conclude with the raising of 1980 team member Bob Suter‘s jersey to the rafters of Herb Brooks Arena. Suter died of a heart attack in September at age 57, the first player from that team to pass away.

More information on the Relive the Miracle celebration in Lake Placid is available here.

NBC’s Hockey Day in America will be live from Lake Placid on Sunday.
