Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes proudly unveiled new signage inside and outside their dressing room Thursday that pays tribute to Hurricanes Captains, WHL/CHL award winners, NHL drafted Hurricanes and players who have taken part in the World Juniors, Olympics and Stanley Cup Champions.
The idea came about during last season when the Hurricanes had a game in Moose Jaw and the Coaching staff was given a tour of their new dressing room. Dick Gibson, Chairman Alumni/Hall of Fame Committee also toured Moose Jaw’s facility and thought this would be a great way to honor the Hurricanes and their accomplishments as well as maintain a historical connection to the players who have played for the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
Gibson stated that “it is important that the current players and future players of this franchise are made aware of the history of accomplishments of those who have preceded them. Hopefully this will encourage them to reach for their goals as a player and team member of the Lethbridge Hurricanes.”
A panel honoring the 1997 WHL Champions will be installed at a later date. The panels will be updated each year as more names are added.
Proceeds from the 2012 Lethbridge Hurricanes/Bronco Alumni golf tournament were earmarked for this project.
