With the CIHL now at the start of its annual Christmas break, the players and staff of the Prince Rupert Rampage are trading in practice sessions for some community outreach, taking some time this week to ring the bells in support of the Salvation Army.
The team which is very active in the community is also making plans for a trip up to Acropolis Manor today as part of their annual Christmas visit to the Seniors long term care facility.
You can catch up with boys on Friday as they return to Safeway from 5 to 9 PM where they will be once again be accepting donations for the Prince Rupert Salvation Army Kettle Campaign.
You can keep up to date on their off ice adventures through the Rampage Facebook page.
The team will be using the Holiday period to rest up for what should be a challenging run towards the end of the season.
January will bring two key road trips for the Rhinos, with the team heading to the Bulkley Valley on Saturday, January 4th for a match up with Hazelton, followed by a showdown with Smithers on Sunday the 5th.
A short break in the week to follow and then it's back to the bus and the longest haul of the year, a trek into the Cariboo for games on the 18th and 19th in Williams Lake and Quesnel.
Rampage fans will finally get to welcome the home side back to the friendly confines of the Jim at the end of January when they wrap up the season with the River Kings on the 31st, followed by the final game of the regular season on Saturday against Hazelton.
