Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes proudly
unveiled new signage inside and outside their dressing room Thursday
that pays tribute to Hurricanes Captains, WHL/CHL award winners, NHL
drafted Hurricanes and players who have taken part in the World Juniors,
Olympics and Stanley Cup Champions.
The idea came about during last season when the Hurricanes had a game
in Moose Jaw and the Coaching staff was given a tour of their new
dressing room. Dick Gibson, Chairman Alumni/Hall of Fame Committee
also toured Moose Jaw’s facility and thought this would be a great way
to honor the Hurricanes and their accomplishments as well as maintain a
historical connection to the players who have played for the Lethbridge
Gibson stated that “it is important that the
current players and future players of this franchise are made aware of
the history of accomplishments of those who have preceded them.
Hopefully this will encourage them to reach for their goals as a player
and team member of the Lethbridge Hurricanes.”
A panel honoring the 1997 WHL Champions will be installed at a later
date. The panels will be updated each year as more names are added.
Proceeds from the 2012 Lethbridge Hurricanes/Bronco Alumni golf tournament were earmarked for this project.
