It’s in support of the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre.
“It’s important to give back to a community that’s in need and it’s such a giving time of year, with Christmas just around the corner, so I encourage everyone to get out to the game and bring a can of soup or pasta sauce and give back to the community,” Rush defenseman Nik Bilic said.
Fans will be able to bid on the jerseys on the team’s Facebook page.
