Canucks alumni coming to Langley
The Vancouver Canucks alumni team will take on the Trinity Western alums on Feb. 25 at the Langley Events Centre.
“This benefit game will bring in support and give our current Spartans team the chance to see the men who went before them and those who helped build this program,” said Spartans head coach Dwayne Lowdermilk, who returned to coach at Trinity Western three years ago after having coached the Spartans in 1988-89. “It is great to see the Trinity Western hockey alumni getting excited about rejoining their teammates of past. This will be a great opportunity to show and share recognition for Trinity Western’s 50-year celebration and also the future of Spartans hockey.”
There will be opportunities for the general public to get autographs from the Canucks alumni in attendance from 7:15 to 7:45 p.m.
There will be a silent auction at the game, with funds going to Spartans scholarships, including items like a Vancouver Canucks team signed jersey and a pair of lower bowl tickets to the Canucks March 30 game against Dallas.
The Langley City Fire Department will also be at the game and will be collecting money for the Fire Fighters Burn Fund. Half of the money collected by the fire fighters will go to the Burn Fund and half will go towards Spartans hockey scholarships.
Game time is 8 p.m.
