Niedermayer plaque ceremony December 27

Hockey Hall of Fame inductee and Cranbrook son Scott Niedermayer will be in Cranbrook’s Western Financial Place on Friday, December 27, as the City of Cranbrook honours the NHL great with the unveiling of a bronze plaque commemorating his illustrious hockey career.

ScottNiedermayerThe plaque will be unveiled at ice level ahead of the Kootenay ICE home game against the visiting Spokane Chiefs starting at 7 p.m. Scott Niedermayer is expected to participate in a ceremonial puck drop at centre ice.

In the spring of 2013, Mayor Wayne Stetski and members of council commissioned a bronze plaque which will be permanently mounted inside Western Financial Place along the concourse area.

“Scott and Rob Niedermayer are two of Cranbrook’s best known and most respected citizens,” says City of Cranbrook Mayor Stetski. “While both are incredible athletes, Scott is the only player in hockey history to win every North American and international championship available to a Canadian player, including the Stanley Cup, the World Championship, an Olympic gold medal, the World Junior Championship and the World Cup of Hockey; truly an amazing legacy!”

For tickets to the game, please call the Kootenay ICE office at 250-417-0322. Kootenay ICE office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
