FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Huskies are back in action this Thursday and Friday night, and both games are special event nights at the North Peace Arena.
On Thursday night, First Responders Appreciation Night, all paramedics, firefighters and RCMP are invited to enjoy the game free of charge.
Former Huskies forward and current Fort St. John firefighter Adam Horst will be in attendance for the ceremonial puck drop.
Horst played for the Huskies from 2005 to 2007, and he also played for the Flyers before getting into the world of Red Bull Crashed Ice.
Following the event on Thursday, the Huskies will don their pink jerseys for Breast Cancer Awareness Night on Friday. All game-worn jerseys are available to buy in a modified silent auction.
Traci Hammond, Director for the Fort St. John Huskies, says the bidding is live on Facebook until Friday.
“It started on October 24th, and it closes on Facebook on Friday at 6 p.m. The bidding continues during the game, and it will close at the end of the second period,” said Hammond. “Proceeds from the jerseys, a percentage of the gate, and half of the Huskies 50/50 total will go to the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation Cancer Treatment Fund.”
In addition to the jerseys, various items donated to the Huskies will be up for bidding in-person at the game.
“All funds raised from the other items will be donated to the Cancer Treatment Fund, staying in our community.”
Hammond says there’s still time to donate items or services to the silent auction.
“If anyone still wants to donate to the silent auction, they can email [email protected], and I can come pick up the donation.”
The Huskies will face off against Alaska Highway rival Dawson Creek Kodiaks on Thursday, followed by a Friday night game against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings.
