Terrier grads to receive unique memento

The nine graduating members of the Yorkton Terriers have a unique gift to remember the 2018-19 Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League season with the team.

Bryce Sherring of Sherring Gold in Yorkton, working with the Terrier organization created a dog tag for the graduates.

“It was an idea I came up with a number of years ago,” said Sherring, adding they were originally made for the ‘seventh man’ promotion going to a young player who joined the Terriers before each home game.

This year the idea grew to focus on the graduates.

“What works better than a dog tag for the Terriers?” asked Sherring.

With the recipient changing to graduating player a redesign of the tag was needed.

The tag is now in the design of a hockey ice surface with ‘Terrier for life’ along the bluelines, the team logo at centre ice, and the player’s name on the reverse side.

Terrier head coach Mat Hehr said the idea is a special one for players.

“I think it’s pretty special, especially a dog tag for the Terriers. I think it’s pretty neat,” he said.
