Victoria Royals Host
Pink In The Rink on Feb 24

Planet Youth Hockey combines the skills of Canucks' alumni and the Planet Ice facilities of GSL Group to provide to ice time and training for youth in British Columbia.

Graham Lee created the idea behind Planet Youth Hockey. Realizing the opportunity to play hockey was out of reach for many youth in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver, Graham Lee approached the Boys and Girls Club of Vancouver; Planet Youth Hockey was created with the help of the Canuck Alumni, who provide their time for coaching and the NHLPA, who provided the equipment. The concept of this program is to offer at-risk kids the opportunity to play hockey, with the end goal of helping get kids onto the ice and off the streets.
Victoria Royals will host the club’s seventh annual Pink in the Rink Night this Saturday against the Portland Winterhawks in support of the BC Cancer Foundation (BCCF), presented by Speedy Auto Service.
