Bruins’ legends hit the ice for charity

Ray Bourque of Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche fame will take to the ice in Barrie to raise funds for the Barrie Special Olympics.
Bourque, a hall of famer and Stanley Cup winner, will captain the Bruins’ alumni squad as they take on the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, Tuesday, Feb. 14 at the Barrie Molson Centre.
Bourque and company will be in town for the Oldtimers’ Hockey Challenge, with the game set to go at 7 p.m. He’ll be joined in Boston colours by Rick Middleton, Terry O’Reilly, Ken Linseman, Tom Fergus, Bob Sweeney, Mike Krushelnyski, Bruce Shoebottom, Dave Ellett, and Cleon Daskalaki.
Recently retired NHL Referee Kerry Fraser will keep the game on track and legal, presumedly with no help required from the police squad.
The challenge lets fans see some of hockey’s best, even if they are a little past their prime. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket goes to charities such as the Special Olympics.
Other highlights of the challenge include laser shows, Crazy Claude – the trumpeter, the Call to Recycle Tykes, Special Olympic Puck Toss and local figure skaters. And, those with tickets can skate with some of the legends at a public skate the day after the game, Wednesday, Feb. 14 from 5-6 p.m.
Tickets are $25 (plus applicable taxes and service fee may apply). Visit www.oldtimershocky.com, or buy at the Barrie Molson Centre box office andhour before the start of the game.
