Less than a month from today, the Alouettes will once again hit the ice all over Quebec for the teamâ€™s 10th annual hockey tour. A fundraising event for the Success For Youth Foundation, local minor football teams and other charities, the organization uses the tour to reach out to communities all over the province and brings the Alouette experience right to its fansâ€™ doorsteps.
The 10th Annual Alouettes Hockey Tour will kick off next Feb. 17 at the ColisÃ©e de Rimouski, with several current and former players on board this year including Paul Lambert, Ed Philion, Phillip Gauthier, Patrick DorvÃ©lus, Sylvain Girard, Shaun Diner, Luke Fritz, Bruno Heppell, AndrÃ© Bolduc, Peter Dalla Riva, Philippe Girard, Tony Proudfoot as well as team president and former player Larry Smith.
In a new twist this year, the Alouettes will have their first ever match up against the Montreal Canadiensâ€™ alumni team, including superstar Guy Lafleur. The Alouettes-Canadiens game will take place Mar. 31 at the Pierrefonds 4 Glaces complex.
