White Rock Whalers raise hundreds for cancer research; beat Surrey Knights 5-3

Expansion PJHL squad held its own Hockey Fights Cancer night Saturday at Centennial Arena

At Centennial Arena Saturday, there was action beyond what took place on the ice between the White Rock Whalers and Surrey Knights.

The Junior ‘B’ Whalers – the newest team in the Pacific Junior Hockey League – won the game, 5-3, and also raised money for cancer research through its Hockey Fights Cancer Night initiative, a take-off of the National Hockey League’s fundraiser of the same name.

Through various channels – including a 50/50 draw and by-donation sales of both cupcakes and paper moustaches – the team raised nearly $500. As well, the team noted that the winner of the 50/50 draw donated his winnings back to the cause.

Local singer Eve Partridge of Crescent Choirs sang the national anthem before the game, and Semiahmoo Minor Hockey Association’s Brady Cyr stood with Whalers players for pre-game lineup introductions.
