Veterans Week game to feature special commemorative jerseys honouring Vimy Ridge
The Storm are proud to unveil plans for the team’s annual Veterans Week game on Friday, November 10 vs. the North Bay Battalion.
In addition to a special pre-game ceremony, the Storm will be wearing one-of-a-kind jerseys to commemorate Canadian veterans, with inspiration from the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Featured on the jersey is the Vimy Ridge monument. A memorial in France dedicated to the memory of Canadian Expeditionary Force members killed during the First World War. It also serves as the place of commemoration for Canadian soldiers of the First World War killed or presumed dead in France who have no known grave.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the battle that helped shaped Canadian history. These commemorative jerseys help to honour and remember the sacrifices made by the Canadian soldiers at Vimy Ridge. As well as all the Canadian men and women who have and continue to serve our country.
The jerseys worn during the game will be auctioned off at a later date.
The 2017-18 season is presented by RBC Play Hockey.
