The Novas

Oliver Smith Legacy Game


During this Day of Remembrance, The Novas once again participated in the annual Oliver Smith Legacy Game held each November 11th in the afternoon after the completion of The Official Remembrance Day Ceremonies. The game is held each year to honour Oliver Smith, remember his legacy, continue to help raise awareness about Ewing's Sarcoma, and as a fundraiser for The Ewings Cancer Foundation of Canada . Oliver's legendary Ollie Bots have helped and continue to help raise awareness about the disease, a rare form of bone cancer that took his young life. A number of The Novas were teammates of Oliver's throughout their minor hockey careers and consider it an an honour to participate each year in his memory.
