The top team in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League will lock horns with several members of its predecessors Saturday at Minoru Arenas.

The Richmond Sockeyes (30-6-0-0 in the PIJHL) will face off against former Sockeyes in the 10th annual Sockeyes Alumni Game at 5:30 p.m.  The game is being presented by the Ashton Service Group and the Richmond Firefighters Association.

Tickets are available for $10 at the door, and there will be a beer garden and silent auction. Proceeds go to the Sockeye Alumni Scholarship Foundation.

This year’s Sockeyes includes Kootenay Alder ((sporting a PIJHL best 1.81 goals-against average),  Jeremy Hamaguchi (whose 56 points are second-best in the PIJHL) and Carter Popoff (fourth in PIJHL scoring with 49 points). The Alumni roster features the likes of Judd Lambert, head coach of the current PIJHL leaders in net,  Ron Popoff, (Carter’s dad) on defence, and Sean Thorsteinson (whose brother Rudi plays for the current PIJHL team).
