Ice hockey and golf enthusiasts won’t want to miss this opportunity to interact with their heroes from the ice in a weekend filled with sports. On Thursday, November 14, NHL and Jacksonville Legends will take part in a round of golf at Queen’s Harbour Yacht and Country Club. The prior evening, November 13, registered golfers are invited to attend a reception at the popular Sneakers Sports Grille, located in the Baymeadows area, featuring a silent auction where participants may bid to have a Legend play with their foursome.

The main event will be the pairing of NHL Legends and former Jacksonville pro hockey players in a face-off at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 15. With players like Ray Bourque, Ron Duguay, Darius Kasparaitis, Rick Middleton, and Eddie Mio, the game will no doubt be electric. Jacksonville will be well-represented by players from the Jacksonville Bullets, Lizard Kings, and Barracudas. “I have been involved with the Legends Tour for the past few years,” says Duguay. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to play for the people of Jacksonville.”
The organizers wish to thank Key Auto Group for their lead sponsorship of the event. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available at www.hockeylegendsjax.com.
