From the Abbotsford Hawks. So is one of British Columbia’s best-known hockey personalities, his name forever enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
When the Firstar Hockey Legends take to the ice against the Heroes Hockey Challenge Warriors on Sunday,
April 7th, Lord Stanley’s Cup will be on display at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. And
Hockey Hall of Fame broadcaster Jim Robson – the beloved, long-time voice of the Vancouver Canucks –
will be on hand to serve as the event’s Honourary Commissioner.
Robson will accompany Her Honour, British Columbia’s Lieutenant-Governor Judith Guichon at the
ceremonial face-off to begin the contest.
Fans will be able to have their pictures taken with The Stanley Cup and collect autographs from the
players before and after the Sunday-afternoon benefit game, designed as an affordable and fun outing for
families, with a chance to see some of the game’s pro legends in action against a squad of some of the best
military hockey players, assembled from across Western Canada.
The Firstar Hockey Legends lineup includes former Canucks Cliff Ronning, Greg “Gus” Adams, Dave Babych
and Darcy Rota. Joining them will be Stanley Cup winners like Colin Paterson and Larry Melnyk … who will
be more than happy to point out exactly where their names are inscribed on the famous trophy.

Doors open at 1:30 and tickets – priced at $29.75 (including all taxes and fees) – are available at the
