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.
