Saturday: Adam Johnson Memorial Game

Saturday night at the Motorpoint Arena

It will be an emotional night in Nottingham on Saturday night.

Nottingham Panthers take to the ice for the first time since the tragic events of October when they face Manchester Storm in the Adam Johnson Memorial Game at the Motorpoint Arena.

There will be a special tribute to Adam ahead of face-off and the Panthers invite all supporters, who are able, to rise in the 47th minute for a minute's applause.

The Panthers will wear the Adam Johnson Memorial Jersey and these game-worn shirts will be raffled. Usual activities such Fifty50, Shirt Off His Back, Chuck-a-Puck and Panthers Vault will be on sale - all of which will be raising money for the Love for Hibbing and Hockey Memorial Fund.

All profits from the AJ47 jersey, puck and Adam Johnson prints will go to the Love for Hibbing and Hockey Memorial Fund.

The beautiful floral tributes remain on Bolero Square and fans are welcome to bring flowers to add to the memorial. The Books of Condolence for Adam will be available for fans to write their own messages and these will be located behind Block 1 and Block 19. The Panthers will have these books available at future games for those who have not been able to sign them so far.

For people who may struggle on their return to the rink, the local mental health charity - Vita Health Group - will be in the foyer for anyone who needs a conversation.

The game will be broadcast for free on YouTube around the world but if any viewers feel they would like to make a donation, they can do so via the GoFundMe page which is raising money for the Love for Hibbing and Hockey Memorial Fund.
