Vancouver players pay respect to military in home-and-home series against Kamloops

The Vancouver Giants will pay their respects to Canada’s fallen heroes this weekend.

Ahead of Remembrance Day weekend, the G-Men will be donning commemorative Vimy Ridge themed jerseys when they take the ice against the Kamloops Blazers tonight (Friday) at 7:30 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.

The Giants will also wear the jerseys tomorrow (Saturday) when the teams wrap up the weekend series in Kamloops.

These game-worn jerseys are available for purchase via online auction ( The auction expires Nov. 7 at noon and proceeds from the auction will go towards the Vimy Foundation.

Single game tickets are available online at or at the LEC box office.

“It’s very important for the Giants and for the WHL as a whole to pay our respects to those who have fought and those who continue to fight for our daily freedoms,” Giants senior vice president Dale Saip said.

There will also be a Sopelwith Camel replica plane on display outside the Langley Events Centre and local author Warren Sommer — who wrote Canucks in Khaki —will be on the concourse selling and signing copies of his book.
