The Moose Jaw Warriors are excited to announce that their Seventh Annual “Snowbirds Night” will be Saturday, March 10th (7:00 p.m. CST) against the Swift Current Broncos.
On January 29th, Brody Willms, Branden Klatt, and Brayden Burke flew over southern Saskatchewan with the Snowbirds. Throughout the course of the day the Warriors learned firsthand the pressures and expectations that come with being a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force 431 Air Demonstration Squadron.
On February 17th members of the squadron took to the ice with the Warriors and then before the game on March 10th the players will welcome the squadron inside their locker room where they will see how the Warriors prepare. Members of the squadron will also be on the bench during warm-ups on “Snowbirds Night”.
The theme of this year’s jersey pays tribute to Canada’s team in the air, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, and Canada’s World Junior team that captured gold at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships. As well, the Warriors starting goaltender that evening will wear a special edition Snowbird themed mask designed by Jason Bartziokas with proceeds going to local charities.
The auction for the special edition game-worn Snowbirds jerseys and goalie mask will take place on Saturday, March 10th during the Warriors and Swift Current Broncos game. It will begin when the doors open at 6pm and the auction will close at the start of the third period.
All winning bids will be announced in the third period and the jerseys will be presented to the winners by the players at the conclusion of the game.
