Guests enjoyed a breakfast in the Olympia Club, followed by an open skate with family and friends.

GM Ken Holland says the team originally planned to honor veterans during a Nov. 10 home game, but the league's work stoppage wouldn't allow it to happen. Instead, he says the team decided on the open skate to pay honor to those who served.
