SYDNEY, N.S – On December 17, 2015, your favorite players from years gone by will hit the ice to support the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation, New Waterford Consolidated Hospital Charitable Foundation and Glace Bay General Hospital Charitable Foundation.

The Legends of Montreal will face off against the Boston Bruins Alumni at 7 p.m. to battle for a win. Heading up the rosters for each team are as follows:

The Legends of Montreal:

Guy Lafleur (coach), Stephane Richer, Steve Shutt, Chris “Knuckles” Nilan, Gary Leeman, Mike Lalor, Steve Penney, Patrice Brisebois, Mathieu Dandenault, Francis Bouillon, Roy Nolan (Goalie).

“Bringing the NHL Hockey Legends to Sydney is a fun and exciting way to wrap up a very exciting year for us at the Foundation,” says Brad Jacobs, CEO Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation. “Just like a hockey team, working together with New Waterford and Glace Bay is very rewarding as we work toward meeting our goals for our priority equipment needs.”

The NHL Legends game will support three local hospitals, who have recently signed a partnership agreement – working together to fundraise for priority healthcare needs in Cape Breton. The event, presented by the Regional Hospital Foundation, New Waterford Foundation and Glace Bay Foundation will host a VIP reception, exclusive dressing room experiences and will be fun-filled for the whole family.

One hundred percent of proceeds will stay in Cape Breton to support healthcare. Thanks to event sponsors, Cape Breton Post, Max 98.3 FM and Hampton Inn Sydney.

Tickets for the game are still available through Centre 200 Box Office, or by visiting tickets.capebreton.ca.
