This Season, We'Re Playing for Bobby Kirkness
The Saskatoon Blades are bringing an extra source of inspiration into Regina this season.
The players will wear specially-marked 'BK' logos in support of Bobby Kirkness, the long-time locker room attendant and often considered the backbone of the organization.
Bobby was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver and pancreatic cancer, and has a difficult road to recovery ahead.
Although he won't be joining the team in the Hub Centre, wearing his logo is a special way to play for Bobby every time the players step onto the ice.
