The fifth annual 'Hockey Day in Sarnia' will be staged Saturday.

Jim Drexler, assistant general manager of the Legionnaires Jr. 'B' hockey club, said a number of the team's players will serve as 'celebrity' coaches for house league games that morning.

Forward Brandon Layman, who has participated in the event during both of the past two years, says the athletes are looking forward to taking part.

"It's a lot of fun,” Layman said. “They (the minor hockey players) definitely appreciate it and ask a bunch of questions.”

Layman added he looked up to older players when he was young. “It's a role reversal and it's nice to give back,” he said.

The festivities will continue Saturday night when the Legionnaires play host to the first-place Leamington Flyers in Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League action at Sarnia Arena.

Puck drop is set for 7:10 p.m.

Drexler said minor hockey players from across Sarnia-Lambton who show up wearing their team jerseys or jackets will be admitted free. And that includes athletes from both boys’ and girls’ teams.

After the contest, fans are invited to skate with the Legionnaires.

Players will also be available to sign autographs.
