MP Patrick Brown is thrilled to announce the addition of Stanley Cup Champion and Canadian Olympic Gold Medalist Corey Perry for Hockey Night in Barrie V. The Anaheim Ducks forward will be joining the ranks of Doug Gilmour, Dale Hawerchuk, Mike Gartner, Ron MacLean, Don Cherry, Darcy Tucker, Shayne Corson, Steve Downie, Raffi Torres, and fellow teammate Matt Beleskey.
“Perry is one of the most prolific goal scorers in the NHL. He was recently awarded the Hart Trophy for being the most valuable player of the 2010-2011 season and also won gold for Canada in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. The addition of Perry makes this year’s roster the best we have ever had”, said MP Brown.
This year’s game will be unique in that the entire third period will consist entirely of current NHL players and alumni. “Hockey fans will love this year’s game because the majority of our roster is current NHL and alumni. This will allow for a fast paced and entertaining game.”
Fans will also be treated to a live game commentary hosted by Hockey Night in Canada legends Don Cherry and Ron MacLean.
Tickets are selling fast and are available at Ticketpro.ca as well as at MP Brown’s office located at 299 Lakeshore Drive (Suite 200) in Barrie.
