Grizzlies Announce Indigenous Recognition Game for October 2nd

The Victoria Grizzlies organization is pleased to announce that the upcoming home game on October 2nd versus the Langley Rivermen will be the Indigenous Recognition Game, presented by Hub International Insurance and the Songhees Nation.

This game will be the first in the “Hockey is For Everyone Series”.

“Our arena is located on the traditional lands of the Lekwungen people, and our goal is to bring our communities closer together through hockey. The message that we want to present is one of reconciliation and community, not for just one game, but a culture that will now become entrenched in the Victoria Grizzlies Hockey club, its players, and its staff. The Victoria Grizzlies believe that hockey is for everyone, this game is just the beginning of our commitment to move words to action making hockey available to all.”

–  Byron Loucks | President of the Victoria Grizzlies

The Songhees Nation is proud to partner with the Victoria Grizzlies Hockey Club to host the first annual Indigenous Recognition Game on October 2, 2022. The Grizzlies’ actions are true to the spirit of reconciliation, hand in hand with their belief that ‘Hockey is for Everyone.’ They are demonstrating this by making scholarships available to Songhees Youth, giving them the opportunity to get out on the ice. We look forward to our continued relationship and future collaborations.”
