CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Roughnecks Lacrosse Club today unveiled a limited edition Star Wars-themed jersey featuring Darth Vader, the Death Star, TIE fighters and the Imperial Star Destroyer.

Saturday’s game will also honour The Force, our hometown heroes, by recognizing first responders along with Canadian Armed Forces, Alberta Sheriffs, Alberta Correctional Services, Alberta Health Services and Calgary 911.
