Regina, SK – The Canadian Hockey League in association with the Regina Pats Hockey Club are proud to launch the online auction featuring the specially design commemorative jerseys worn by the Pats in tonight’s opening game of the 2018 Mastercard Memorial Cup against the Hamilton Bulldogs.
The jerseys will be available for online auction at auction.chl.ca beginning Friday May 18 at 10:00 pm closing Monday May 28 at 9:00 pm Eastern.
Designed by the Pats in conjunction with the CHL, the jersey pays tribute to Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, a privately funded regiment that was founded at the outbreak of the First World War. The Pats were named to honour this regiment for their inaugural season in 1917-18 and proudly continue this today, 100 years later.
Proceeds from the auction will go towards supporting the Dominion Command Poppy Trust Fund. All donations to the Poppy Fund are placed in trust to be used for the care and benevolent support of Veterans and their dependents. The MasterCard Memorial Cup Theme Jersey Program was created in 2008 and has cumulatively generated over $185,000 for Veterans.
