Westshore Wolves players Brandon Nicholson and Brett Lervold in a November battle against the Peninsula Panthers. The Wolves players will meet and greet with fans Wednesday in Colwood.

Eat with Wolves on Wednesday.

The junior B Westshore Wolves will be at the Colwood McDonalds from 5 to 6 p.m. on Feb. 6. Fans are welcome to meet and eat with the Wolves players.

“It’s really important for us to set a good example in our community and reach out to the kids,” said team captain Josh Bloomenthal.

The players will sign autographs for children and the Wolves mascot will be there for some fun.

Bloomenthal said it’s also nice for the team to know the youth that are moving up through the Juan de Fuca hockey system.

“It’s something that kids can do that’s productive and teaches them the values that we look for in citizens,” said Bloomenthal. “It’s fun for us too, we like it. We like to help out and joke around with these kids.”

That night the Wolves play the Saanich Braves at 7:30 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena.

As of Wednesday morning the Wolves were tied with Nanaimo for third in the league.
