Halifax will be wearing special jerseys for the 8th year in a row which will be raffled off to fans at the game, with 3 being auctioned off online at a later date. This year, the Mooseheads will be playing homage to the Royal Canadian Navy and all money donated from the raffle tickets will be given to the Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Garden in Halifax. Both teams will be looking to get back in the win column and spread themselves from the bottom of the standings, Chicoutimi might be a bit more hungry as they’ve lost 3 in a row.
