The Prince Rupert Firefighters and RCMP take to the ice this Friday in the Ninth Annual Guns & Hoses charity game.

Guns & Hoses returns for ninth year

The RCMP will look to chip into the Firefighters’ historic six games to two lead when the two renew their on-ice rivalry once again

The Prince Rupert RCMP will look to chip into the Prince Rupert Firefighters’ historic six games to two lead when the public service organizations renew their on-ice rivalry once again this Friday night.

The Ninth Annual Butch Duffy Memorial Guns & Hoses Charity Hockey Game begins its 2017 iteration with a 7 p.m. start time at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre Friday, March 3.

Always a treat for fans to see their community heroes battle it out in a game of puck, this year’s charity game will benefit the Prince Rupert SPCA and Wildlife Shelter with proceeds going to the two animal rescue agencies.

Admission will be by donation and door prizes are also available to be won by attendees.

Come cheer on your favourite team!
