Scott Niedermayers Blazers Jersey to be Retired Jan 25


Recommended Posts

Brian Burke, Greg Hawgood, Rob Brown, Greg Evtushevski and Mark Recchi amongst others to attend.


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.
