Ashcroft Peewees hit the big time

The team played a five-minute exhibition game between periods of a Kamloops Blazers game last month.

During the Kamloops Blazers home game on November 24, the Ashcroft Warriors Peewee hockey team was invited to play a five-minute game during the first period intermission.

The five- and six-year-old boys and girls on the team suited up, lined up to high-five the Blazers as they came off the ice, play hockey in front of the audience (the team was divided into two squads), and then meet Digger the Blazers’ mascot after their time on the ice.
