Rosters are set for Friday night’s charity hockey game to benefit the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy.
It will be firefighters and first responders against Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey alumni, and people who have been around the game in Maple Ridge will recognize many of the names.
“We’ve got a good roster for both teams, and it’s going to be competitive,” said event organizer Andrew Henderson.
Examples are defenceman Dalton Yorke who played four seasons in the Western Hockey League and is now playing professional hockey in Germany with the Frankfurt Lions, or Cody Campbell who played in the BCHL, U.S. college hockey, and is now a high-scoring foreward with Angers in the professional league in France.
The rosters are:
