A hockey swap of used equipment is a new addition to this season’s schedule of preseason events in Port Hardy, with gear exchange available at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena the weekend of Sept. 14-16.

To exchange gear, drop off your used equipment at North Star Cycle and Sports. Be sure it is clean and in good condition, and attach a slip with your name and number and what you would like to receive in exchange.
