Hurricanes Set For Final Home Games

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.

The Player’s Bench Community Relations Award
The Hockey Hounds Scholastic Player of the Year Award
The 1st Choice Savings Most Sportsmanlike Award
The Evergreen Golf Centre Top Defenseman Award
The Ramada Inn Top Scorer Award
The 94.1 CJOC Three Stars Award
The Lethbridge Fan Favorite Award
The Joan Kobal Memorial for Perseverance, Dedication and Sportsmanship Award
The Carl Trentini Memorial Award (Hurricanes Rookie of the Year)
The Harry Ingarfield Memorial Award (Hurricanes Most Valuable Player)

The Lethbridge Hurricanes will also be saluting their two graduating players – Captain Brody Sutter and Damien Ketlo prior to the game.

  1. How is the "Fan Favorite" chosen?.....thought there was to be a chance to vote....

    Just read that the Kootenay Ice have made the playoffs for the last 14 consecutive years.....makes Cane fans rather envious doesn't it?

  2. I hope the team goes out in a blaze of glory this weekend and finishes their home games with two more wins.

    Good luck Hurricanes.


  3. Fan favorite award was up on the website for a few weeks but not well publicized. Sutter was leading when they stopped the voting with I think Johnston or Maxwell second.

  4. Fan Favorite was on their website and the update was on their social media sites as well also reminding people to go vote.

  5. I'll be dumbfounded if Ketlo gets more starts than Liston. I don't care what Ketlo's plans are after this season, the organization doesn't owe it to him to continue to "showcase" his talents for his next hockey career (as one person suggested). The organization needs to do what's best for the organization. If they thought they owed it to every 20 year old to showcase their talents and give them all the ice time, this franchise would be in big trouble trying to move forward.

    Get Liston in the nets for ALL the final games and let's see how he responds! If he doesn't respond, then maybe it's time to play Kovacs. Do something other than play a goalie who isn't going to be here next year.

  6. As for Kootenay making the playoffs 14 years in a row......Canes' fans can be jealous of the team's accomplishment, but their own fans wouldn't be able to cause they don't attend. That's certainly nothing to be proud of......Darren

  7. I hope that the fan favorite is 12, Mr. Ramsay!

  8. I might have to cast a vote for Damien Ketlo as fan fave....anyone else have thoughts? After Braes left, it's hard to tell who is the fave.
