Possible History and Pink Jerseys part of Next Oil Barons Game

History could be made at the next Fort McMurray Oil Barons home game.

The team is taking on the Whitecourt Wolverines and their head coach, Gord Thibodeau, is one win away from becoming the all-time winningest coach in AJHL history.

Oil Barons Head Coach Tom Keca tells Mix News he hopes the record will be made, next weekend.

“Gord and I are best of friends, I’ve kept a tally here this year as well, I think it’s a phenomenal accomplishment.”

The team will also be wearing pink jerseys in an attempt to raise money for the Health Foundation. They will be auctioned off after the two-game homestand.

Keca notes he hopes this will become a tradition for the team.

“We have a lot of requests to do different things in the community but this is something that the initiative was spearheaded last year.”

Puck drop for both games is at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
