SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Syracuse Crunch are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the cult classic “Slap Shot” with a Slap Shot Night on Friday, March 31 when the team hosts the Toronto Marlies at 7 p.m.
As part of Slap Shot night, the Crunch will wear replica Charlestown Chiefs jerseys. The jerseys will feature the Chiefs lettering and signature gold and blue stripes on a white sweater. The Tampa Bay Lightning and Syracuse Crunch logos will be on the shoulders. Following the game, the Chiefs jerseys will be auctioned off on the team’s official auction site to raise money for the Crunch Foundation benefitting nonprofit organizations around Central New York.
Along with wearing the Charlestown Chiefs jerseys, the Crunch are celebrating Slap Shot by offering for sale sets of the original blue and orange steal-cushioned War Memorial Arena seats from the filming of the movie in 1977.
