On Tuesday night the Saskatoon Blades hosted close 100 minor hockey captains for the Blades’ first ever Captain’s Night. Minor hockey players from Saskatoon and surrounding area enjoyed a pre-game banquet and supper at SaskTel Centre. During the meal a couple of past leaders with the Blades spoke to the young players about leadership including Blades’ alumni and current Assistant Coach, Ryan Keller, former Blades captain Dave Chartier.
Current Blades captain, Evan Fiala, delivered a video message to the group as did former Captains Brett Stovin and Nick Zajac. The young captains then made their way onto the ice for the national anthem prior to the game.
The Saskatoon Blades would like to thank all of the minor hockey captains and coaching staff members for attending. As well a thank you to the Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association for assisting in the organizing process.
