Plymouth - August 29, 2013 - The Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers are in the middle of training camp and will scrimmage on Thursday and Friday from 9-11 am and 2-4 pm at Compuware Arena.
The scrimmages are open to the public and media.
The Whalers play their first pre-season game on Saturday at 7 pm against Windsor at Eddie Edgar Ice Arena in Livonia.
The game is being played for charity. One hundred percent of the proceeds generated in the game benefit the Livonia Fallen Heroes Memorial at the Larry Nehasil Park in Livonia.
Eddie Edgar Arena is located at 33841 Lyndon in Livonia. Tickets for the game run $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at Livonia Police Department (734-466-2470), Eddie Edgar Ice Arena (734-427-1280), Compuware Arena (734-453-8400), Livonia Chamber of Commerce (734-427-2122) and the Livonia Community Recreation Center (734-466-2900).
The Larry Nehasil Park and the Livonia Fallen Heroes Memorial were created as a memorial to the service of late police officers Larry Nehasil, Ervin Johnston, James Kelley and Sidney Dethloff and fireman Gary Kreski. Ground breaking for the project happened on July 17, with the anticipated completion some time during the summer of 2014.
“We’re very excited here, not only with the (Livonia) police department, but the fire department and the entire city organization,” said Livonia Police Chief Curtis Caid. “The game between the Whalers and Spitfires is going to stimulate growth for the park and the monument – all through donations. No city or taxpayer funds will be used. An event like this game is critical for the success of the park.”
