Feb 02, 2012 - 15:47 GMT

The Vancouver Giants unveiled a special jersey Thursday afternoon, honouring co-owner Gordie Howe (pictured above with Wes Vannieuwenhuizen, Jordan Martinook, Brendan Gallagher, and Neil Manning), which they will wear Friday night when they play host to the division leading Kamloops Blazers at the Pacific Coliseum. The jersey is red and white, in honour of Howe's storied days with the Detroit Red Wings, and features his familiar #9 on the front logo and sleeves.

Friday night is Canadian Direct Insurance Legends Night featuring Mr. Hockey. 100 lucky fans will get the opportunity to meet Gordie Howe; as well, the first 5000 fans through the doors will receive a commemorative poster. Puck drop is at 7:30 pm at the Rink on Renfrew. Get your tickets now at VancouverGiants.com
