The Sea Dogs announced details for the annual “Pink in the Rink” game today. The game, which will be held this Friday at 7:30pm against the PEI Rocket, will see the team wear pink jerseys in support of breast cancer research.
Sea Dogs equipment manager David Kelly tweeted some pictures of this year’s jersey yesterday.

“We in the Sea Dogs organization are proud to support breast cancer research with the Pink-in-the-Rink program,” said Sea Dogs President Wayne Long in a team release. “It’s a fun event that helps raise awareness and funding for a great cause.”
According to the Sea Dogs, “this year’s post-game jersey presentation is taking on a different format, switching from a silent auction to a raffle. Tickets for the raffle are available now in the Sea Dogs office and are $5.00 each, 3-for-$10 or 10-for-$20. They are available in the Sea Dogs office, by calling 657-DOGS (3647) or via email: email@example.com.”
“We believe the switch to a raffle will allow a greater number of participants, a more even competition for all fans and hopefully, will generate additional funding for breast cancer research,” said Long.
The jersey winners will be announced at the end of the game and jerseys will be given out in numerical order according to the roster.
The Sea Dogs are also giving fans a chance to purchase a limited amount of pink socks from last year’s event to go along with raffle tickets. The offer is available online here.
