The KL Gold Miners are once again honoured to pay tribute to the history of hockey on the Mile of Gold. This Friday, December 20th they will wear Holy Name Irish Jerseys when they host the Timmins Rock at the complex at 7:30 pm and then again the following night in Timmins.
The jerseys will be up for auction in the complex lobby, so that fans will get a chance to take a one of kind jersey home. The Irish have a storied history in KL from 1935-1985. Players moving on to the NHL include Ted Lindsay, Gus Mortson, Dick Duff, Larry Hillman, Chuck Hamilton and Tommy Webster. They won two all Ontario Titles in their 50 year history.
This is the third time the Miners have chosen to honour our past as they worn 1940 Lakeshore Blue Devil Jerseys last season and Legion Jerseys on Remembrance Day. All Holy Name Irish Alumni wearing their jerseys will gain free admission, so come on out and enjoy some fast paced Gold Miners hockey Friday night at the Complex.
