On Saturday March 9 at 3pm, the Alumni Association will ice a team to take on the NHL Legends. The Rink of Dreams event will be at the Elgar Petersen Arena in Humboldt. The game is the centrepiece of a weekend celebration of hockey in Humboldt. First things first: we need to recruit a team! Do you want to wear the green and gold one more time?
The game is the centrepiece of a weekend celebration of hockey in Humboldt, along with a Celebrity Sportsman Dinner in support of the Humboldt Broncos and Humboldt Minor Hockey Association. Team members must be former Humboldt Broncos players, from any era – we hope to ice a team that represents 48 years of hockey. You must also join the Alumni Association to be eligible to play – this is a great opener for the Association.
If you want to play on March 9, send an email asap. Subject line is “I want to play, coach.”
Include the year(s) you played for the Broncos, your position, and where you live now. We want to ice as many players as possible, and the roster will be limited. The Alumni Association’s event committee will select the team.
If you are not playing: we need you in the stands! Get your friends, teammates, and family together, and come support the team (or cheer for the NHL Legends if you must). Rekindle relationships and have a blast. Game tickets are on sale beginning Wednesday, January 23 at www.humboldtbroncos.com.
If you’re up for more: join us at the Celebrity Sportsman Dinner. Share laughs and stories, help the Broncos raise some money, and have dinner with Bryan Trottier! Dinner tickets are on sale at www.humboldtbroncos.com.
We’ve been asked to come back to Humboldt, where we all grew up, and be part of these events. However you participate, we hope to meet you there.
Jamie is now in the Saskatoon Royal University Hospital preparing to undergo a new chemotherapy mix aimed to drive the cancer into remission and enable him to undergo a stem cell infusion. Jamie’s parents have been selected as his nearest match, at 50%, and will be the donors for this infusion. Jamie has been told finding a 100% match will be difficult given his rare stem cell type.
All of Jamie’s family and friends are working hard to raise awareness of the importance of becoming a stem cell donor in support of Jamie and all those who find themselves undergoing these same battles of trying to find a perfect match.
On behalf of Jamie, his immediate and extended family, and all his many friends – we sincerely thank Hockey Gives Blood for raising awareness for Jamie, his wife Cyndi and their three children.
