Cal­gary Flames le­gend and founder of the Break­ing Free Foun­da­tion, The­o­ren Fleury, is com­ing back to the val­ley to share his story and cel­e­brate vic­tors with the Drumheller Dragons.

On Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12, the Dragons are host­ing Vic­tor Night in sup­port of the Break­ing Free Foun­da­tion. This is a non-profit foun­da­tion that sup­ports those in the com­mu­nity that have suf­fered trauma.

Busi­ness man­ager of the Drumheller Dragons, Dustin Ed­wards, tells the Mail the Dragons made con­tact with Fleury when he was through the val­ley last sum­mer dur­ing the Vic­tor Walk.

“We knew about the team here and said they were look­ing for ex­po­sure for the foun­da­tion he is part of, Break­ing Free,” said Ed­wards. “We stayed in touch over the sum­mer, and this was the game that worked out for him.”

It will be a full day, how­ever. Fleury has com­mit­ted to speak at St. An­thony’s School in the morn­ing and then at DVSS in the af­ter­noon.

“In his talk, he is go­ing to touch on the Foun­da­tion, he is go­ing to talk about hockey and his story. He is go­ing to talk to the kids about his strug­gle and his jour­ney,” said Ed­wards.

At the game, he is sched­uled to do the open­ing face­off and also visit with peo­ple. A por­tion of the 50/50 at the game will go to sup­port the Break­ing Free Foun­da­tion.

“I think it is go­ing to be nice. We get to spend the day with the kids and then open up the game that night,” said Ed­wards.

On Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12, the Dragons will be tak­ing on the Cal­gary Mus­tangs. Game time is at 7:30 p.m.

The­o­ren Fleury will be back in the val­ley Oc­to­ber 12, for Vic­tor Night with the Drumheller Dragons.
