Youth the theme in Panthers jersey giveaway

Peninsula Panthers will wear special third jerseys on Friday night and will give them away to Peninsula Minor Hockey players in attendance

When the Peninsula Panthers host the Comox Valley Glacier Kings Friday night they’ll be wearing new duds.

They’ve dubbed the Panthers’ final regular season home game before playoffs as Peninsula Minor Hockey Appreciation Night and they’ll wear a third jersey to celebrate.

The new design will be worn only once, at the Feb. 17 game.

After the Comox Glacier Kings leave the ice, the Panthers will remain and 20 Peninsula Minor Hockey players’ names will be drawn from a hat in front of the crowd on the ice after the game. Players who win, and must be in attendance, get to line up on the blue line across from the Panthers. After more random name-pulling, all 20 jerseys will be handed out.

“This is one of my favourite games of the year,” said Panthers owner Pete Zubersky. “There is a whole bunch of wide eyes and, with the huge crowd that usually is in attendance, everyone is really a winner.”

Peninsula Minor Hockey players also get in for $2 – or half that if they wear their club jersey.
