The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks announced plans to honour former Captain Greg Thede during their next home game.
On Friday, January 11th, the Winterhawks will hold a ceremony prior to their game against the Elora Rocks to recognize Thedes contributions to both the organization and our community during his 11 seasons as captain.
We wanted to do something for Greg as a show of appreciation for everything he gave us, said Winterhawks President Gord Lamont.
Amongst his accomplishments, Thede is a seven-time W.O.A.A. Sr. AA champion, winning three championships during stops with Durham and Elora prior to coming home to play with the Winterhawks in 2007.
The game is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. at The Plex in Port Elgin on Friday night as the Winterhawks continue the battle for playoff positioning against the much-improved Elora squad.
Tickets will be available at the door at standard pricing, $8 per person.
