Blazer fans will have a chance to salute Niedermayer when the club retires his No. 28 at Interior Savings Centre on Friday, Jan. 25.


The ceremony will be held at about 7 p.m., before Kamloops and Prince Albert get underway.


“It’s a tremendous honour,” Niedermayer told KTW.


“I’ve been retired now for about two-and-a-half years and you really get a chance to think about your career and reminisce.”


Among the memories from his junior career with the Blue and Orange: Moving to Kamloops from Cranbrook when he was 15; meeting his billets, Roger and Sheila Paulson, and his first roommate, teammate Trevor Buchanan; being drafted by New Jersey in 1991; learning to win with coaches like Tom Renney, Ken Hitchcock and Don Hay; reaching the Memorial Cup as a 16-year-old in 1990; and two years later, the greatest memory of them all, winning Canadian junior hockey’s Holy Grail at 18.


Also, Burke was on the Jim Harrison show this morning (chnl radio kamloops) where he talked about his memories of Scott and what he knew about the Luongo situation up until his last day in TO.

Only 400 seats and 500 standing room tickets available as of 2:45 this afternoon. Safe to say this one will be a complete sellout. Looking very forward to the game!!! :towel:
