Dec 8. event connects Aurora and Humboldt hockey communities

AURORA (December 8, 2018): Members of the Aurora and Humboldt hockey communities came together for a hearty meal and camaraderie – and an opportunity to rub shoulders with several NHL alumni. This special “meet and greet,” organized by Sport Aurora, and hosted and sponsored by Aw Shucks Seafood Bar & Bistro, delivered a warm welcome to the Humboldt delegation that included four former players, family members, and ex-NHLer Chris Joseph, whose son Jaxon had died in the April 2018 bus crash. Also on hand were the Jr. A Aurora Tigers and team owner Jim Thomson – another NHL alumnus, along with Dave Gardner, who played his first season with the Canadiens in 1972, and Steve Vickers, who laced up for the NY Rangers in the same year.
