BMO, the Official Bank of the Canadian Hockey League, brought BMO Ultimate CHL Fan Appreciation Night to the GM Centre for Oshawa Generals Fans. As of the festivities, BMO held a contest for the Ultimate Oshawa Generals Fan where local booster Captain Oshawa emerged victorious.
After being selected from the crowd and competing against two other contestants in a round of Generals trivia on the players’ bench, Captain Oshawa was named the BMO Ultimate Oshawa Generals Fan, winning a signed Generals team jersey with the BMO Ultimate CHL Fan crest and a $50 pre-paid MasterCard.
As the winner of the BMO Ultimate CHL Fan contest, Captain Oshawa is now entered to win the grand prize: a trip for two to the MasterCard Memorial Cup next year in Saskatoon.
“The BMO Ultimate Fan Appreciation Night demonstrated how important CHL hockey is to Oshawa,” said Lori Conlin, Branch Manager, Oshawa Main Office, BMO Bank of Montreal. “Thank you to all of the fans who attended and congratulations to Captain Oshawa for proving himself to be the BMO Ultimate Oshawa Generals Fan.”
Between October 23 and December 12, 2012, BMO Ultimate Fan Appreciation Night will be held in 40 communities across Canada to celebrate the 9.5 million CHL fans. Each event will recognize one BMO Ultimate CHL Fan, and one BMO Ultimate Fan in each league of the CHL (Western Hockey League, Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League) will receive the grand prize.
