Calgary Hitmen unveil hockey jersey recognizing great neighbours – Calgary


The Calgary Hitmen hockey team unveiled a jersey celebrating people who make their communities better on Friday.

“This jersey is meant to be gifted to someone as a thank you,” said Rob Kerr, manager of Hitmen business operations, in a press release.

“It’s for that neighbour who takes care of the old couple down the block, for the coach who spends a few extra minutes helping a youngster throw that perfect pitch or for the nurse who always has a smile on their face, no matter how many patients they have seen.”

“Our hope is that when you see someone wearing this jersey, you will know that you’re seeing a great neighbour, a person who has made our community better with no thought of acknowledgment or compensation,” Kerr said.

“You will also know the person inside that jersey is a great neighbour.”

Hitmen players will wear the jersey during Sunday Funday home games this season, with its debut scheduled for Oct. 3 at the game against the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
