On Thursday, the Kitchener Rangers unveiled the special jerseys that they will wear in the opening game against Gatineau on Friday. The jerseys* were designed to commemorate the historical significance of the military to the tournament. They will wear them once and then auction them off at CHL on EBAY with the proceeds going to the Poppy Fund.
Poppy funds are used to support veterans and their families, buy hospital equipment, support cadet groups, and provide student bursaries. The auction closes May 26-08 19:01:15 EDT.
*In conjunction with the jerseys, the players helmets will be auctioned off as well separately.
