A free family skate will be held following the Petes Family Day matinee game at 2 p.m. Monday at the Memorial Centre.
Petes players will join fans on the ice following their game against the Sudbury Wolves. Skaters must purchase a ticket to the game to participate.

Zach Gallant will return to Peterborough on Friday to visit an eye specialist.
Gallant has been home in Oakville resting after taking a stick to the eye in a game in Ottawa last week. Petes GM Mike Oke said doctors were waiting for blood in the back of Gallant’s eye to dissipate before they could get a clear look. Oke said Gallant has not complained of any vision issues but doctors have not yet been able to get a full view of his eye.
Oke said Gallant has not participated in any physical activity. If given the green light to return to skating and working out, Oke said it’s still likely take Gallant a week or two to get back into game readiness.
Petes GM Mike Oke said there is no clear timetable right now for Jonne Tammela to return to the Petes.

Oke said all indications are the surgery was successful and Tammela is improving but he said no date has been given to him for a potential return. Tammela, the Petes 2015 CHL Import Draft selection, has dressed in just two games for the Petes.
