Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey is hosting the Vancouver Canucks Alumni team to celebrate their 35th anniversary this season. The game is happening Friday, Jan. 11 at the Gibsons Arena. The Canucks Alumni team will be facing a team of Sunshine Coast Blues coaches, sponsors and special guests.
The Vancouver Canucks Alumni has 125 members that include defenceman Jyrki Lumme and Jack McIlhargey, forwards Kyle Wellwood, Thomas Gradin, and Gino Odjick, and goaltenders Kirk McLean and Richard Brodeur, to name a few. Just which alumni members will be playing on the Sunshine Coast will be announced in late December.
Funds raised from this event will go towards much needed on-ice training equipment and minor hockey development programs. Puck drops at 6:30 p.m. with an autograph signing before the game. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids under 12 years old with family packs available for $40.
Melissa Tripp, board member with Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey is spearheading the event. “We are very excited to be hosting this event here on the Sunshine Coast and look forward to a fantastic evening of hockey while raising money for our development programs. We would like to thank the community for their continued support.”
