Tonight is game night!

Tonight is game night!

The Robert Lachowicz Invitational takes place tonight at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham.

Warm-up begins at 7pm with player introductions from 7:20pm and the first game facing-off at 7:30pm.


Panthers players past and present – as well as some sponsors and supporters – have been split into four teams and the draft selections were unveiled at last night’s dinner at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground.

There will also be some fun skills contests and the night will be rounded-off with a penalty shootout.

Testimonial brochure programmes will be on sale for £5, with reflections on Lacho’s career and some thoughts of family, friends and team-mates involved in his career.

You can win with the 50-50 draw and there are four chances to win on the shirt off the back raffle with, of course, Lacho’s shirt up for grabs but also the shirts of David Clarke, Jordan Fox and David Ling.


After the game, there will be the game-worn shirt auction where all the shirts from every player past and present will be up for auction, as well as a very special shirt Claude Giroux Philadelphia jersey, signed by the Flyers roster and kindly donated by Chris Stewart.

Sealed bids were taken at the dinner last night for the NHL shirt and so the starting bid will be unveiled ahead of the auction.

The shirt auction will take place on level three of the Motorpoint Arena in Syndicate Room 1.

There will be an after-party where you have the chance to mingle with some of the stars of Panthers history. This will take place after the game at The Alchemist, located on King Street in Nottingham.
