BLAZERS TO HONOUR WHL CLUBS FROM THE 80’S IN SUITABLE FASHION

By Colton Davies

For Immediate Release:

Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers have announced that the team will wear old-school CCM Propac full-length pants during the team’s home game on Friday, March 4th against the Kelowna Rockets.

The CCM Propac pants were previously worn by Blazer teams in the 1980’s, an equipment style that lasted until 1986-87. The Propac pants were also dawned in the NHL by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1981-82, and again in 1982-83 by the Flyers and the Hartford Whalers.

The full-length Propac hockey pants are similar to the original “Cooperalls” designed by Cooper Canada in the early 1970’s.

The notion by the Blazers will be the first time any WHL club has honoured the old style equipment worn around the league in the 80’s.

The game against the Rockets on March 4th will also be broadcast on Sportsnet’s CHL Friday Night Hockey coverage on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific, as well as NHL Network US.
