The Lloydminster Bobcats are excited to announce that on March 11, as part of Rogers Hometown Hockey Weekend, we will be partnering with First General Lloydminster and Fountain Tire Lloydminster to bring the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni to the Centennial Civic Centre as part of a celebrity hockey game.
This will replace the usual Evening of Champions as the Bobcats biggest fundraiser of the season and with the added buzz of Rogers Hometown Hockey, will attract fans from all over the region!
Confirmed as of February 10th Joe Nieuwendyk and Darcy Tucker will be on-hand as two of the more recognizable members of the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni.
Darcy Tucker joined the League at the beginning of the 1995-96 season as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. Drafted 151st overall by the Canadiens, the Castor, Alberta native spent four full Major Junior seasons with the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. In total Tucker registered 379 career WHL points, and won the Memorial Cup three times. Tucker joined the Leafs in 1999-00 and would spend his next eight seasons playing for the blue and white. In 947 games Tucker scored 215 goals and picked up another 261 assists for 476 points in the pros.
Joe Nieuwendyk broke onto the NHL scene as a member of the Calgary Flames in 1986-87. The Flames drafted him 27th overall from the Cornell Big Red hockey team where he finished his NCAA career as the team captain. Throughout his distinguished playing career, Nieuwendyk played for a total of five NHL teams over 20 years, winning the Stanley Cup in 1988-89 with Calgary, 1998-99 with the Dallas Stars and 2002-03 with New Jersey. In 2002 Nieuwendyk added yet another impressive accomplishment to an already stellar hockey resume when he captured a Gold Medal with Team Canada. In 2003-04 he scored 50 points with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
