NORTH SAANICH — Residents of the Saanich Peninsula will have a ticket draw of their own for the Kraft Hockeyville preseason NHL game won by Panorama Recreation Centre earlier this year.

Panorama, the Kraft Hockeyville team and the North Saanich local organizing committee announced Monday ticket details for the Monday, Sept. 21 game between the Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks.

Panorama won the NHL preseason game and $100,000 for arena upgrades in the 2015 Kraft Hockeyville contest in April. NHL officials visited the area and other local venues and determined the game would be held at the Q Centre in Langford.

All tickets are going by way of a supervised public lottery, taking place at Panorama Saturday, Aug. 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, Saturday, Sept. 5 (10 to 4) and Sunday, Sept. 6, from noon to 6 p.m.

Saanich Peninsula residents are eligible to enter a residents’ draw — which requires proof of residence.

People will have to place their ballot in person. They must be at least 19 years old and have photo ID to enter for a chance at winning two tickets.

All draws will be held Sept. 9 and announced at Panorama’s main arena Sept. 10, with results posted to  panoramarecreation.ca.
