Prince Rupert Port Authority pays for Rampage offence

The offensive prowess of the Prince Rupert Rampage has paid dividends for the Salvation Army.

The offensive prowess of the Prince Rupert Rampage has paid dividends for the Salvation Army.

Early in the season, the Prince Rupert Port Authority committed to donate $100 to the Salvation Army for each goal scored by Rampage players during 2013/2014 home games. Following the final home game on Jan. 12, which the Prince Rupert Rampage won 5-4 in overtime, the team had a total of 34 goals equating to a $3,400 donation made by the port to the Salvation Army. The funds will be used for the food bank, shelter and other services the organization provides in Prince Rupert.

Ken Veldman, the port’s director of public affairs, said it has been the port’s pleasure to partner with the “enthusiastic and community-minded hockey club” this season.

“Through their dedication to the team and the many extracurricular events they participate in, these young men are incredible supporters of our community. We’re excited to continue building our relationship next season and we look forward to watching a few more Rampage wins as they begin the CIHL playoffs this weekend,” Veldman said.

Ron German, president and manager of the Prince Rupert Rampage, was also pleased to partner with the PRPA in the 2013/2014 campaign and was satisfied with how the team played.

“The addition of new players moving to Prince Rupert, as well as some players moving back, helped strengthened our squad this season. The dedication of our players made for an entertaining season, and we played hard through every game, even with a number of player injuries,” German said, adding the team gained experience that will carry forward to make the next season even stronger.

“We’re grateful for the support of all our sponsors, particularly the port authority, and most importantly the amazing fans we have in Prince Rupert.”

The Central Interior Hockey League playoffs kick off this weekend, with the Rampage facing off against the Terrace River Kings on Saturday at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.
