It’s almost time for a pair of Stanley Cup champions to be forever enshrined in B.C. hockey history.

This year’s B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony comes to the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton on July 21, with former Chicago Blackhawks Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook among those set to be honoured.

The pair suited up together for the Blackhawks during the team’s 2010, 2013 and 2015 Cup-winning runs, and captured gold medals for Canada at the Vancouver-hosted Winter Olympics in 2010.

“It is unique and almost unheard of that two defenders who played together as a pair at the highest level for so long will be inducted together,” said Jim Hughson, BC Hockey Hall of Fame chair and the former lead play-by-play commentator for CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada.

Keith and Seabrook will be inducted alongside former NHL linesman Lonnie Cameron, White Rock Whalers owner Ronnie Paterson and the 2007 Memorial Cup-winning Vancouver Giants.

The SOEC is the current home of the province’s hockey hall, with several displays that honour the players, teams and history of the sport in B.C.

Tickets for this year’s induction ceremony can be purchased at valleyfirsttix.com.

Along with the ceremony, there will be silent and live auctions.

The night’s live auction will include the chance to win hockey trips to Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto.
