Pick up your best marmot birthday gifts!
Our beloved Marty the Marmot turns 12 this Sunday, October 29th, and rumour has it he’s pretty stoked about it. You just can’t wipe the smile off his face.
Gift selection for Marty is always a challenging one. Though most marmots would be seen carrying a root or flower, Marty struts his stuff with a large drum and a Victoria Royals jersey. Perhaps a new drumstick or jersey for the young man might be fitting.
Celebrate Marty’s birthday by skating with the players!

Puck drop is slated for 3:05 pm and the players are out with the fans by 6:00 pm – depending on the game duration.
