Hockey fans know what a special place the Hockey Hall of Fame is. From its beautiful architecture to its various relics and artifacts, it’s truly an outstanding venue and a must-see destination for every hockey fan. Last week, the Marlies season seat holders got to experience the venue and all it had to offer while spending the evening with the members of the Toronto Marlies.

The evening started out with Marlies play-by-play man Todd Crocker welcoming everybody before inviting head coach Steve Spott to the podium for a few words. The first order of business for Steve was to have the crowd sing Happy Birthday to defenceman Kevin Marshall, who turned 25 that day:

 

After a few words from the head coach, Steve invited Jerry D’Amigo to play emcee and introduce the members of the Marlies:

The season seat holders then spent the rest of the evening mixing and mingling with the Marlies. Some opted for autographs and photos:

While others got the chance to test their shooting and goaltending skills in the interactive games section:

This year’s event had an extra special touch as Leafs alumni Johnny Bower and Rick Vaive were also in attendance, signing autographs in the Great Hall:

Marlies defenceman Stuart Percy appreciated the opportunity to get to know the fans a little bit more. “There’s tons of fans so it’s great to have them out tonight and get to know their faces.”

“As professionals sometimes, you go to the rink, you leave the rink and sometimes you take for granted the people that support your hockey club both on and off the ice,” observed head coach Steve Spott. “To see the support from our season ticket holders is overwhelming and I can tell you how much our players appreciate it.”

A big thank you to all of our season seat holders for your constant support and enthusiasm! Check out a recap of the event at the video below:
