Hockey culture is deeply embedded in our Canadian identity. Which is why we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with The Ontario Hockey League, in association with the Canadian Hockey League, to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy Landings. This November, all teams in the OHL will wear special commemorative patches on their home jerseys during games, followed by an online auction to benefit the JBC.
Two teams, the Niagara IceDogs and Sudbury Wolves, will wear this a special commemorative D-Day jersey designed to pay tribute to Canada’s brave Second World War veterans. Are you interested in owning a limited-edition D-Day Commemorative jersey? We’re auctioning off two jerseys until November 30th — get your bids in to own this unique piece of hockey memorabilia!
Last night, JBCA Director LCol Peter Dawe dropped the ceremonial puck at the Remembrance Day Peterborough Petes game:
On Saturday, JBCA Director Sgt Darry Casselman will drop the puck alongside Korean War veteran Col Frank Bayne at the Niagara Ice Dogs game at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines. We’ll also be raffling off a jersey for those in attendance. Visit our table in the concourse level!
Stay tuned for more highlights from this exciting partnership!
