The 2018-19 Ryerson Rams Men’s Hockey Alumni Game was held on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019. Since the first annual RRHA Alumni game was played in 1999, this marks the 20th anniversary for this event.

February 2nd is also the late John Saunders’ birthday and John’s team mates from the 1970’s got together for “The Birthday Game” and announced the recipient of The #4 Award, which is awarded annually in John’s memory to the current Rams most valuable defenceman. Gregory DiTomaso was this year’s recipient. You may read about the #4 Award here.
