Dauphin - November 16-17
The Parkland Rangers U-18 AAA Hockey Club held their second annual Ukrainian Night on Saturday, Nov. 16, versus the Winnipeg Bruins. This evening also coincided with Rogers Hometown Hockey broadcasting in Dauphin. The night was a very lively affair, with lots of activities happening between periods and during play stoppages. Opening ceremonies included the unveiling of the Rangers' special Ukrainian Night jerseys, which were sold post game through silent auction. As well, Tara Slone from Hometown Hockey and long time NHLer Colton Orr were on hand for the ceremonial puck drop. Intermissions featured mattress races and a perogy toss. Overall the night was a tremendous success, with the crowd of 940 leaving happy following a Rangers overtime win. The Parkland Rangers would like to thank Ryan Rauliuk of Ruff's Furniture and Appliance, in Dauphin, for the tremendous amount of time and money he devoted to this evening. The Rangers would also like to thank all the Ranger parents and volunteers, without who this night would not have been possible.
