The Cape Breton Eagles are gearing up for the 2021-22 Season in celebration of 25 years and there are plenty of exciting things in the calendar to look forward to. Fans can expect to pay homage to the past 25 Eagles seasons, while also celebrating culture, hockey and some of the fantastic stories from across Cape Breton Island. Celebrations will kick off on August 16th as we take our Training Camp on the road to Glace Bay – a town with rich hockey history and passionate hockey fans. A list of other events will follow such as:
- Sunday, October 10th vs MON: 3rd Jersey Reveal
- Friday, October 22nd vs VDO: Pink in the Rink
- Thursday, December 30th vs HAL: Hurley Cup, Battle of Nova Scotia
- Additional event to take place prior to the Holiday’s: Details TBD
- Thursday, February 3rd vs HAL: Jersey Retirement Ceremony
- Saturday Feb 26th vs CHA: 1st Annual Cape Breton Heritage Game hosted by Membertou First Nation
- Saturday, March 12th vs SHE: Irish Jersey Game
Of note, there are 4 new additions to the promotional calendar; 3rd Jersey reveal, Jersey Retirement, and the Cape Breton Heritage game. The jersey reveal will be a celebration of both the past and the future, and the design will marry some old with some new. The jerseys will be on sale prior to the game at the Eagles Landing Retail store both online and in person. Following the jersey game and Pink in the Rink, there will be another event in store for fans before the Holiday’s. Details will be shared in the coming weeks.
Secondly, we are excited to announce a jersey retirement ceremony that will take place in early February 2022. Fans can expect an announcement in September as to the recipient but it’s sure to be a fantastic evening at C200.
Last, but certainly not least, the introduction of the 1st Annual Cape Breton Heritage game in late February. Born out of the 25th Anniversary and the idea of celebrating our Island’s history, culture, and industry we are proud to introduce this annual celebration. Each season the Eagles will partner to showcase true Cape Breton Heritage – and for its inaugural season we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Membertou First Nation. On February 26th fans can expect to attend a celebration of both culture and hockey which will be amplified with custom made jerseys and socks designed solely by Membertou.
