KAMLOOPS – World junior gold medallist, Joe Hicketts will be honoured at this evening’s, Jan. 14, Blazer game.

Hicketts was born and raised in Kamloops. He is currently in his third season of his WHL career and is captain of the Victoria Royals. In September, the Detroit Redwings agreed on a three-year entry level contract with the defenseman.

The ceremony to honour Hicketts will take place before the Blazer's game against the Portland Winterhawks.
