It’s going to be close to a packed house at Tilbury Arena for tonight’s Montreal Canadiens alumni hockey game.

Chairman of the charity game Randy Chevalier says they’ve got 11 Habs participating, and they’ve tried to create an atmosphere in Tilbury Arena so you feel like you’re at the Bell Centre.

“Fans will be surprised to look up into the rafters and they will see there hanging all 24 Montreal Stanley Cup banners,” says Chevalier. “They will see all of the retired player numbers.”

Of the 1,000 tickets being sold Chevalier says they have about 200 remaining. General admission tickets will be sold at the door until all tickets are sold.

The event is organized by the Tilbury Lions Club, raising money to support local programming.

Puck drop is set for 7:30pm.
