Canadiens Alumni special appearance at Mayor’s Cup this year

Steve Shutt mentioned as one NHL notable to be in Courtenay on March 29

It’ll be the Habs vs. the Habs-Not at this year’s Mayor’s Cup fundraising hockey game.

The Montreal Canadiens Alumni, recruited by Comox mayor (and huge Habs’ fan) Paul Ives in order to avenge last year’s loss to Courtenay, will represent Comox at this year’s game, which goes Sunday, March 29 at 2 p.m. at Comox Valley Sports Centre Arena #1.

For the past three years, all proceeds have gone to KidSport Comox Valley. This year, the money will be split between KidSport and the Comox Valley Minor Hockey Association.

General admission is $20. There will be a VIP Meet & Greet buffet at Crown Isle Resort from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. that same day. A special VIP admission which includes the buffet, photos and autographs with players is $100. VIP tickets are limited to 100.

Genaral admission tickets and VIP tickets are available at Happy’s Source for Sports on 6th Street in Courtenay. (Cash only).

The Canadiens Alumni, with Guy Lafleur rumoured to be head coach, is expected to include NHL greats such as Steve Shutt, Gaston Gingras, Chris Nilan, Stéphane Richer and many more.

Which brave souls will lace ’em up for Courtenay to face the former – and still formidable – Habs has yet to be announced.
