October 28, 2013, Prince Albert SK (ISN) – The Prince Albert Raiders announced today that the entire team will wear authentic commemorative jerseys in the warm-up of Friday night’s game in honour former Raider Mike Modano having his number retired prior to the game.
The jerseys, provided by Conexus Credit Union, feature the same design and logo from when Modano played in Prince Albert, as well as featuring the number 9 and Modano name bar on the back of the uniforms. Twelve of the jerseys will be available for purchase via a silent auction in the Johnny Bower Lobby, with the winners being announced in the third period. At the conclusion of the game, winners will receive their autographed jersey from Modano himself at ice level.
The Raiders also have many special items for the Raiders store to celebrate the evening, including special Modano pucks for just nine dollars, as well as Modano t-shirts and 11″ by 17″ limited edition prints that honour Modano’s hockey career. Earlier in the day, Modano will be a featured special guest on TSN’s Off the Record with Michael Landsberg, airing at 3:00 PM Saskatchewan time.
