The Kamloops Blazers will play a floor hockey game tonight, November 28th. Their opponents are the Special Olympics floor hockey team. The action happens at Brock Middle School from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.

The annual Food Bank night was held on Friday, November 25th and with the help of our fans, we were able to collect 2600 pounds of food and $1200. All the proceeds will go to the Kamloops Food Bank to help families in need in our community.

The Blazers have three home games this week to finish off their first half home schedule.

On Wednesday, November 30th the Blazers host local product Ryan Gropp and Canada World Junior hopeful Mathew Barzal and the Seattle Thunderbirds at 7:00pm.

Saturday, December 3rd, the Blazers host the Vancouver Giants at 7:00pm. Saturday will be the annual Zimmer Wheaton Teddy Bear Toss game. The tradition originated with the Kamloops Blazers during the 1993-94 season. Over 50,000 teddy bears have been collected and distributed in the Kamloops community over the past 23 years.

The Blazers final home game before the Christmas break is on Sunday, December 4th against the Brandon Wheat Kings. Game time is 5:00pm at the Sandman Centre.
