Petes to Host Erie and Windsor in Alumni Homecoming Weekend Home Stand
The Peterborough Petes look to remain atop the OHL’s East Division standings with a pair of home games against Western Conference opponents this weekend.
On Thursday, October 11 at 7:05pm the Petes will host the Erie Otters. The game is sponsored by Fresh 100.5, who will be giving fans the chance to ‘Spin & Win’ in the North Lobby of the PMC. The James Fund will be hosting a fundraising chuck-a-puck, and the Peterborough Pop Ensemble will perform the national anthems.
On Saturday, October 13 at 7:05pm more than 65 Petes alumni will be in attendance for a game against the Windsor Spitfires as part of Alumni Homecoming Weekend presented by Gibson’s Finest Canadian Whisky. A special pre-game ceremony will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Memorial Cup Champion Petes, in which nearly the whole team will take part. The game is sponsored by Allstate Insurance, who will be giving a lucky fan the chance to win $10,000 in an on-ice rapid fire contest. The Petes will wear specialty jerseys designed by PTBO Northern Originals that will be auctioned off online with funds going to muscular dystrophy research, along with funds raised through a chuck-a-puck on Saturday night. Prizes available include a team-signed Petes jersey and numerous gift cards. The Trent Music Society will perform the national anthem.
