Wearing their classic Knights jerseys, the Penticton Vees delighted students at West Bench Elementary with a visit to the school on Tuesday.

Some of the students even got in a ball hockey game against a few of the players.

Other Vees players held a captivated audience while they read books to several classes.

Outreach to kids is a big part of the Vees program.

Now, the team is getting ready for their season opener Friday, Oct. 8 at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Penticton is going into their first game with a perfect pre-season.

The Vees are making their season home opener a Knight to remember with a throwback to the 1985-86 Penticton Knights.

On opening night, Oct. 8, the Vees will be honouring their past and the 35th anniversary of the Knights winning the 1986 Centennial Cup as they take on the Vernon Vipers at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Tickets for the opening game of the season are available now through the SOEC Box Office as well as online at valleyfirsttix.com.
