The Empire Strikes Back

It's a trap!

BRAMPTON, ON – An urgent message to all members of the Alliance! Earlier this week, Emperor Palpatine sent his stormtroopers on a top-secret mission to harass Luke, Leia and the rest of the gang as they headed north to Brampton. The stormtroopers used blocks of ice from Hoth to create a Wampa-sized ice storm to keep the Alliance from reaching the Powerade Centre for tonight’s game.

In other words, the Beast will not be wearing their Star Wars jerseys after ice storms in Memphis, Tennessee have caused a delay in delivery. The show will continue as normal for the Beast’s second annual Star Wars Night however, with Darth Vader set to drop the puck for the ceremonial faceoff at 7:30 pm.

Joined by the 501st Canadian Garrison, the Beast will add an ‘Imperial March’ twist to the best pre-game laser show in the GTA while minor hockey players take to the ice before puck-drop for a special light saber show. Contests and promotions throughout the concourse will allow fans the opportunity to cheer like Ewoks all night long, with a prize for the best Wookie call.

Fans in attendance for tonight’s game will have an opportunity to receive tickets to attend Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back on March 27, where the Beast will finally unveil the much-anticipated jerseys. To receive your ticket for the upcoming game, bring your stub to the Fan Services booth located on the concourse outside Aisle Four.
