On Friday, January 11, 2013, the Kitchener Rangers Hockey Club will pay tribute to its 1982 Memorial Cup Champion team by donning commemorative jerseys in the style worn by the original team.
The unique 1982 Memorial Cup Commemorative Jerseys will be worn in celebration of 80’s Night at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium, as the Rangers welcome former players and staff for a special alumni celebration.
Fans will have an opportunity to own this piece of Kitchener Rangers game-worn memorabilia by attending the team’s final home game of the season on Sunday, March 10, when they will have the chance to win the ‘Shirt Off Our Back’. The jerseys, which will be worn for the second time during the Rangers’ 2:00pm game with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, will be given as prizes during the team’s Fan Appreciation Celebration.
The 1981-82 Kitchener Rangers won the franchise’s first Memorial Cup, defeating the Sherbrooke Castors in the championship final in Hull, Quebec. The roster featured future Hockey Hall of Famers Al MacInnis and Scott Stevens, as well as future Stanley Cup Champions Wendell Young and Brian Bellows.
We welcome all Rangers fans to come out to celebrate 80’s Night and check out the 1982 Memorial Cup Commemorative Jersey at The Aud this Friday, January 11 as the team takes on the Sarnia Sting at 7:30pm. Don’t forget to pick up your tickets for Fan Appreciation Day, Sunday, March 10 at 2:00pm.
