DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The B.C. RCMP will be faced with the ultimate test when they face the Montreal Canadiens’ Alumni in a charity hockey game in February.
As part of the Alumni’s tour across Canada, they will play a game of Canada’s favourite past time versus B.C.’s RCMP officers from the Lower Mainland and North Districts.
The Canadien’s lineup will feature Stanley Cup Champions which includes their bench boss Steve Shutt, former All-Stars and Hall of Famers.
“For many in the RCMP this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play against former NHL superstars from the storied Montreal Canadiens,” said Sgt. Nancy Chahil of the Dawson Creek RCMP. “To bring them to Dawson Creek, and to play for charity, makes this game mean that much more. This is an event that will really bring the community of Dawson Creek together in support of a great cause like the Dawson Creek and District Hospital Foundation.”
Proceeds will go towards the Dawson Creek and District Hospital Foundation with the game set for February 1st.
