Habs legend Steve Shutt leads Canadiens Alumni into battle

The roster of Habs alumni that will take on the CSCL Chilly Wackers Feb. 15 has been revealed.

An honoured member of the Hockey Hall of Fame will be behind the bench for the Montreal Canadiens Alumni when they face the CSCL Chilly Wackers at Prospera Centre Feb. 15.

We already knew Patrice Brisbois, Stephane Richer and Chris ‘Knuckles’ Nilan were going to be in town for the fundraiser, which raises money for the Chilliwack Society for Community Living.

The remainder of the Habs roster was revealed Monday.

Steve Shutt won five Stanley Cups with Montreal and was the first left winger in NHL history to ever record a 60 goal season.

He will work the bench and juggle an Alumni roster that includes John Scott, Oleg Petrov, Glen Metropolit, Normand Dupont, Keith Acton and Marc-Andre Bergeron.

Richard Sevigny will be the goalie.

Regular tickets are available for $15 apiece. Youth tickets for ages 3-10 are $10 apiece with childen three and under admitted free.

For $75 you can purchase a VIP package that includes a Meet & Greet with the Alumni team before the game, with photo and autograph opportunities.

The package also includes appetizers, drinks and automatic entry into a draw to win a jersey signed by the Alumni.

Proceeds from the game will help the Chilliwack Society for Community Living achieve its goal ‘to provide quality individualized supports to enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities, children and youth with special needs and their families.’
