Fort McMurray, AB (October 7, 2021) – The Fort McMurray Oil Barons are excited to be back at Centerfire Place this weekend for a pair of games against the Lloydminster Bobcats on Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30pm.
In recognition of Truth and Reconciliation and in honour of the lost children and survivors of residential schools, the Oil Barons are bringing back a long-standing tradition to support community programs and will be hosting a jersey auction on October 8 and 9. In partnership with Centerfire, the players will be wearing the commemorative orange jerseys with proceeds going to local indigenous charities.

Each jersey will have a minimum bid start of $200 with $5 increments.
