Rivermen offering free admission to home games

The Langley Rivermen are giving the gift of hockey this holiday season.

The local junior A hockey team is getting in the holiday spirit by celebrating “Rivmas.”

For the last three home games before the Christmas break, fans will receive free admission to each game and a $5 food or merchandise voucher to use at the game.

“We have always tried to lead the BCHL [B.C. Hockey League] in new creative promotions and this one that will certainly benefit the people of Langley,” Rivermen director of operations Taylor Henderson said. “The holiday season can be a tough time for many and this is a way for our team to give something back to the community, while providing family entertainment during a stressful time of the year.”

The Rivermen – who are 5-1-0-1 in December, have won four in a row, and currently sport an 18-11-1-4 record, good for second in the BCHL’s Mainland Division – kick off “Rivmas” with a visit from division rival Prince George Spruce Kings on Thursday, Dec. 18 at the Langley Events Centre.

On Friday the team welcomes the Powell River Kings to town and on Saturday, the final day of “Rivmas”, Langley hosts the Victoria Grizzlies.

All three games have 7 p.m. opening puck drops.

“We encourage the people of Langley to come out and enjoy an evening or three on us, while experiencing exciting junior hockey in their hometown,” Henderson said.
