Three Former Vernon Junior Hockey Players Participate In NHL Winter Classic Alumni Games:

With the NHL Winter Classic set for today at Comerica Park in Detroit, yesterday featured two Alumni games involving some of the greatest players ever to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings.

Among the players featured in yesterday's two games, three former Vernon Junior hockey players enjoyed the games and festivities.  Suiting up for the Detroit Red Wings was former Vernon Lakers forward Dallas Drake (1987-88) and former Vernon Vikings goaltender Kenny Holland (1973-74).  Suiting up for the Toronto Maple Leafs was former Vernon Essos forward Dave Tiger Williams (1970-71).
