For the second time in three years, the Winnipeg Jets will play in the NHL's promotional "Kraft Hockeyville" game.
The pre-season contest will take place Sat., Sept. 14 in Belleville, Ont., at Yardman Arena against the Washington Capitals. The host-town contest was won by nearby Stirling-Rawdon, which will receive a Stanley Cup parade, an NHL alumni visit and game and a $100,000 cheque for upgrades and renovations to the Stirling District Recreation Centre.
In announcing their participation tonight, the Jets issued a statement from GM Kevin Cheveldayoff.
"The Kraft Hockeyville program is an exciting celebration of the game of hockey and the Winnipeg Jets are proud to be a part of it once again," Cheveldayoff said. "We look forward to facing off against our former divisional rival, the Washington Capitals, as well as visiting the community of Stirling-Rawdon in September."
The Jets' first appearance in Kraft Hockeyville took place in September 2011 in Newfoundland and Labrador when the team defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-1.
Ticket information for this year's game will be available soon.
