The Vancouver Giants unveiled their White Spot Legends Night tribute jerseys today, which will be worn on Saturday, November 16 facing off against the Tri-City Americans at the Pacific Coliseum.

The jerseys honour the 1945-46 Vancouver White Spots of the Pacific Coast Junior Hockey League. The White Spots were the first junior hockey team in Vancouver and were owned and coached by Nat Bailey, the founder of the iconic Western Canadian chain, White Spot Restaurants. For those who are unfamiliar with White Spot, imagine that one go-to spot your parents took you to for some comfort food. White Spot is it for a British Columbia native no doubt.

White Spot Legends Night is also a celebration of White Spot Restaurants’ 85th Anniversary. Vancouver Giants’ first-overall pick in the 2013 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft,Tyler Benson, is set to make his WHL debut on White Spot Legends Night.

She was hooked after the first shot off her aluminum Gretzky hockey stick at 13 years old. Growing up playing competitive hockey in Vancouver, British Columbia has inspired her to coach in addition to playing. She is currently the Vice President and Assistant Coach of her alma mater Simon Fraser University for the women's ice hockey club. Upon graduating with a BBA, she has found a way combine her love of sports, mainly hockey, with her career. She has worked with the BC Lions and still works for the Canucks for Kids Fund on game days coordinating one the best 50/50 programs in the NHL. In a nutshell - Ovechkin over Crosby, Vancouver Canucks are my #1, New York Rangers are my #2...and she bakes cakes (the Cake Boss type).
