The Prince Rupert Rampage held their annual, skating with the Rampage day earlier this month. Fans were invited down to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre to meet some of their favourite players on the Rampage.

Members on the team skated around taking photos and talking to their most die-hard supporters.

“It’s nice to get out into the community and they support us every home game so its great to give back, ” said Tyler Ostrom assistant captain of the Rampage.

People who made it to the rink were invited to bring non-perishable food items as an entrance fee. The food was then gathered up and sent to the Salvation Army to help those in need this holiday season.

Players on the team know how important it is to give back to the community and most importantly the children of Prince Rupert.

“Its good to get out and hang out with the kids, have fun, teach them how to skate a bit, all the kids love it, it’s lots of fun,” said captain of the Prince Rupert Rampage, Jared Meers.

Children and parents alike flocked around the Rampage to get their favourite player’s autograph.
