The Vancouver Canucks have announced the roster for the alumni game at the 2013 Young Stars Classic in Penticton.
No goaltenders have been announced.
Some players on the team did not even play for the Canucks and there are not that many well-known names. Expect more popular players like Trevor Linden, Pavel Bure, Markus Naslund and Kirk McLean to make an appearance at the Heritage Classic alumni game.
The Canucks alumni team will take on the Penticton Old-Timers, which will feature “Frank Darin, Penticton Vees Director, alumni Craig Cooke and Lance Johnston, Penticton Knights alumnus Dean Garnet and local firefighters Marc Tougas and Jared Holmes.”
The game will take place at the South Okanagan Events Centre on Saturday, September 7 at 5 p.m. The game will be followed by the Edmonton Oilers versus the Winnipeg Jets at 7 p.m.
