Saskatoon, SK - As the 2019 regular season draws to a close, the Saskatchewan Rush have one remaining home game this Saturday that has tremendous meaning both on and off the floor - Heroes Night, presented by TD in support of the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
During the game, Rush players will be wearing special edition Hero Jerseys. These jerseys are currently being auctioned off on the team’s Facebook page, with all proceeds going to JPCHF.

- Children from the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital will read out the Rush starting lineup in the team dressing room and they will run out with the Rush starting lineup during player introductions
