CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Roughnecks Lacrosse Club has unveiled a limited-edition Star Wars jersey featuring BB-8, a droid who serves with the Resistance.

The unique jersey will make its one and only appearance of the 2018 National Lacrosse League season this Saturday, January 27 at 7:00 p.m., when the Saskatchewan Rush visit the Scotiabank Saddledome for a Star Wars Party presented by Cardel Homes.
