Renous Whoopers to host Habs alumni as part of Hockeyville celebrations

The Renous Whoopers will face off against a team of Montreal Candiens alumni later this summer.

The game is part of Kraft Hockeyville festivities and will take place at the Tom Donovan Arena in Renous on September 15th.

The roster of former NHL stars, along with other Hockeyville activities will be released at a later date.

Winning the Hockeyville contest resulted in $250,000 to upgrade the community's rink and an opportunity to host an NHL preseason game between the Habs and Florida Panthers.

That game is scheduled to take place on September 18th, however a site has not yet been announced.
