Terrace hockey players will face off against a Canucks alumni team at the Terrace Sportsplex September 26.

Canucks alumni will line up for a meet and greet at 4:30 p.m. and the puck drops at 7 p.m.

Put on by the Terrace Peaks Gymnastics Club, the game is meant to raise money for improvements to the club’s facility adjoining the Thornhill Community Centre.

The improvements list includes  building new change rooms, men’s and women’s washrooms, and a new lobby and office area.

“It should be a fun night,” said Terrace Peaks manager Keira Almas.

Event coordinator Kasey Lewis says Peaks expect more than 1,000 people to attend and are hoping to raise $30,000 to $35,000 for the building.

The game also provides a chance to honour a roster full of dedicated community-supporters.

The Terrace players were nominated and selected by local coaches Steve Smyth and Bob Park, chosen for their abilities and community involvement.

“There were some very difficult choices to be made. A lot of people in Terrace are very giving of their time and resources in supporting the community,” said Smyth.

“These players will not only provide an entertaining hockey game for the fans, but perhaps more importantly, these people help make Terrace a better place to live through their contributions in sponsorships and volunteer time.”

On the local roster are goaltenders Tony Pavao, Paul Gillis and Dave Scott with defencemen Larry Nordstrom, Trevor Gibson, Kevin Fletcher, Travis Lamming, Trevor Johnson and Darcy Mallett.

Forwards are Shane DeJong, Mitch Shinde, Rob Bell, Russ Sparkes, Brent Webb, Colin Parr, Lazlo Ratkaj, Ryan Watson, Kelly Gingles and Chris Culp with Cory Killoran on standby.

Tickets are available at All Seasons and the club is still looking for volunteers.

Anyone interested can contact the gymnastics club at 250-638-0447.
