The Saanich Predators are set to play their first official home game on the newly refurbished Pearkes Golden Ice rink this Friday, October 1.

Since its renovation and expansion, this arena can now accommodate 120 people and the rink has a brand new concrete slab for the ice surface, as well as new boards and glass.
The space has also been freshly painted and a new time clock and safety net have been installed.
To honor the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, the team will be raising donations in support of the Indian Residential School Survivor Society during the game on October 1.
They will also use orange tape on their hockey sticks to show solidarity and remembrance, according to a statement.
The match starts at 6.30 p.m. and tickets are available at the gate from 5.45 p.m. Proof of vaccination must be presented prior to entry.
