LANTZ: The Hants East Rural High Tigers boys hockey team may not have come out on top against North Nova Gryphons on Dec. 1, but in reality everyone came out winners.

HERH put on Orange in the Rink in memory of North Nova’s Brayden Ross, who donned the no. 4 jersey during his time playing with the squad. Ross passed away from Leukemia.

At the game, all proceeds from it would be donated by the Tigers to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada in Brayden’s memory. The team raised $280.

Logan Miles was tagged with the loss in net.
