The Lethbridge Hurricanes will close out the home portion of the 2011-2012 this weekend, hosting the Calgary Hitmen on Friday and Medicine Hat Tigers on Saturday.
Friday’s game is the Jersey off our Back auction where fans will get a chance to bid on all game worn third jerseys from this past season. Bidding starts when the doors open at 6:00 pm and ends the second the clock starts to begin the third period. Winning bidders will be invited to have their photo taken with the player wearing their jersey at the end of the game.
Saturday it’s our Annual Awards night where we’ll recognize the accomplishments of a number of players for their performance both on and off the ice in a special pregame ceremony. All fans are encouraged to get to their seats early so they don’t miss this exciting pre-game presentation where the following awards will be up for grabs.
