Anholt’s Army is a new partnership with the Okanagan Boys & Girls Club and West Kelowna Warriors Captain Matt Anholt.
8-10 youth from the Boys & Girls Club will get to watch every Warriors home game from the special Anholt’s Army section. At the game they will receive popcorn, a free t-shirt, and they’ll meet Matt after the game.
Anholt will also run a drop-in ball hockey game every Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm at the Boys & Girls Club on Webber Road throughout the year.
For each point Matt scores $25 will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club courtesy of his sponsors: Fender’s, Ultimate Hockey & Skate, and Shutout Sports Collectibles. Matt currently has 12 points through 18 games, and picked up 3 points in 3 games this past weekend.
“I’m honored I can be a part of such a great charitable effort like this,” says Anholt. “I want to thank my sponsors, and the Warriors for making this possible. Obviously I have a little pressure now to go out and have a good season, but more importantly I’m just happy I can help out with the kids in our community.”
Anholt is already committed to Alaska-Anchorage for the 2015-16 season (NCAA Div.1), and will be a great role model scholastically for the kids.
“I am very proud of Matt to step up and lead our team in the community off the ice,” says Warriors Head Coach/GM Rylan Ferster. “He already plays such a strong game, this will add to his desire on the ice.”
For more information about Anholt’s Army, or about the drop-in ball hockey, please contact Andrew Deans at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hockey store comes to aid of young player benched by theft
Kind-hearted owners of a West Kelowna hockey store have provided new equipment to a youngster who lost all his gear to thieves.
Eleven-year-old Brydan Jackson couldn't believe how quickly good fortune followed bad when he was outfitted for free by the owners of Ultimate Hockey and Skate.
"I think it was really, really cool that I was given all this stuff for free," Brydan said Thursday. "It was a big surprise and I'm very grateful."
Brydan, a member of the West Kelowna Outlaw peewee squad, had all his equipment stolen the day before the team's first game of the season earlier this month.
"He was very disappointed not to be able to play, but he still went to the game," said Brydan's mom, Sherry Jackson. "He put on his suit, dress shirt and tie, and went to the arena to cheer on his team."
The Jacksons were in the process of trying to borrow equipment or buy used gear as word of Brydan's misfortune got around to the owners of Ultimate Hockey and Skate in downtown Westbank.
"We didn't hesitate for a second to help out," said Marc Cormier, who owns the store with business partner Tyler Nowek. "We got him set up with skates, shoulder pads, chest protector, pretty much the whole nine yards."
Cormier, who grew up in Moncton, N.B., recalls he was once lacing up for a game with a pair of old skates that were much too big for his feet.
"Coach came over and said, 'Here, try these on,' and he gave me brand new skates. I've never forgotten that.
"When Tyler and I hear about a kid who's had all his equipment stolen, we like to help out if we can," Cormier said. "It's kind of paying it forward. Plus, we want kids to keep going and play hockey. It keeps them healthy and off the streets."
With the new gear, worth about $700, Brydan was able to play in the Outlaws' second game of the season, in which he registered an assist. He also proudly wore the equipment for the official team photograph, which was taken last night at Royal LePage Arena.
