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.

During the first intermission, Hicketts will show off his gold medal from the World Junior Championship and sign autographs. 

Fans can also enjoy pub night, with four-dollar-beers and popcorn and apply to win passes for Eagle Point golf course. Shark Club will give away an air hockey table to a fan wearing a football jersey.

If the Blazers score a goal, you can redeem your ticket for free breakfast sandwich at Tim Hortons.

You can buy your ticket online through Ticketmaster, or by calling the Blazers Box Office at 250-828-3339. If you attend the game, Out of the Cold Homeless Shelter is requesting fans bring socks to help those in need.
