Jamestown Ironmen players volunteered some of their time this week to ring the bell for the Salvation Army outside of Wal Mart in Lakewood.
“It is a privilege for our players to be playing hockey in this community, and we try to give back to the community as much as we can, especially around the holidays,” said Ironmen Head Coach Dan Daikawa.
The Ironmen are part of the North American Hockey League, a junior hockey league made up of 24 teams representing 13 different states. Jamestown is currently tied for first place in the NAHL North Division and will host the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings with games tonight at 7pm and Saturday at 5pm at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena.
Chris Pierce will be performing live music in Sully’s Irish Pub located inside the Jamestown Arena tonight beginning at 6pm to start off. In the spirit of the season, it is also Ugly Holiday Sweater Night tonight. Saturday will be Ironmen goaltender, Reid Mimmack’s last game with the team before he moves on to NCAA Division I hockey. There will be a Mimmack trading card giveaway to the first 200 fans through the door on Saturday.
The Ironmen will be collecting donations of toys at this weekend’s games to support ‘Toys for Tots”. There will be a collection bin at the Arena Box Office and anyone who donates on their way into the game will receive a $2 discount on their ticket.
