The Wellington Dukes will be hosting a benefit game against the
Kingston Voyageurs on August 27, 2013 at the Essroc Arena in Wellington,
Proceeds from the game will be used to assist former Dukes
defenceman B.J. Ketcheson as he continues to deal with some serious
health injuries that require him to travel to Kingston for treatments.
The Napanee, Ontario native played one season (1995-96) with the
Dukes as a 15-year old before going on to play four years in the Ontario
Hockey League with the Peterborough Petes and Mississauga
IceDogs. He was drafted by the Florida Panthers in the 7th round, 176th
overall, of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Ketcheson is now a 33-year old
carpenter and is married with two young children.
Tickets for the game are $10.00 each and are on sale at the
Wellington Dukes Box Office inside the Essroc Arena (Belleville St.,
Wellington), Lavender Furniture (Main Street, Wellington), AM Sports in
