The Vancouver Giants are proud to present the first installment in our 2011-12 Legends Series; “Heroes of Hastings Night” presented by White Spot on Saturday November 12 when the Giants play host to the Kelowna Rockets at 7:00 pm.

The event will honour some of the greatest moments and personalities in the history of the Pacific Coliseum, Empire Field, Hastings Racecourse, and The Forum. There will be a retrospective photo display on the concourse featuring the work of Vancouver Sun photographer Ralph Bower. Select images from the collection will be raffled off to raise funds for the B.C. Children’s Hospital. As well, the first 5,000 fans through the doors will receive a commemorative poster to celebrate the event. Plus for one night only the Giants will wear tribute jerseys modeled after the “White Spots” junior hockey team of the 1940’s.

Personalities who will be attendance include former Canucks ‘King’ Richard Brodeur and Gino Odjick, the original voice of the Vancouver Canucks, Jim Robson, the first public relations director for the Vancouver Canucks Greg Douglas, former B.C. Lions standouts Jim Young and Nick Hebeler, Vancouver Whitecaps Bob, Sam, and Dan Lenarduzzi, the voice of Hastings Racecourse Dan Jukich, and an original member of the Western League Canucks and former White Spots player Ernie Dougherty.
