Fans will then get to welcome the Saskatoon Blades to the arena as they arrive in style in one of Merlin Ford Lincoln’s showcase vehicles. Following their arrival, the entire team will be given the red carpet treatment, giving fans the perfect opportunity to see their favourite players in person before they hit the ice!
