Habs fans are in luck.

The Mon­treal Cana­di­ens Alumni Tour will in­clude a stop at the Kings Mu­tual Cen­tury Cen­tre in Ber­wick March 29.

Town of Ber­wick ac­tive liv­ing co-or­di­na­tor Katie Ver­rette is prep­ping to be a force to be reck­oned with be­tween the pipes for the Se­lects.

“Ev­ery­body’s go­ing to make sure I’m at the top of my game. I’ve been play­ing men’s rec league all year so I’ve been prac­tic­ing and I think I’m go­ing to be ready to go,” she said.

Ver­rette started play­ing hockey when she was four, and dis­cov­ered her love of goal­tend­ing at six. Her pas­sion for the game, cou­pled with hard work, led to stints at a prep school in the United States and a five-year ten­ure with a var­sity squad at St. Fran­cis Xavier Univer­sity in Antigo­nish.

“I am ready. I’m a born and raised Toronto Maple Leafs fan, so it makes it re­ally ex­cit­ing to play against Mon­treal. I hope I come out with a big win for the team,” she said.

The Ber­wick Se­lects ros­ter will in­clude lo­cal play­ers of var­i­ous ages, Ver­rette added.

“I hope ev­ery­body will be there to cheer us along.”

Gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are sell­ing for $20, and VIP passes that will in­clude a meet and greet com­po­nent are $50. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at the town hall in Ber­wick.
