We really miss the Maine Mariners this season. But Mariners Head Coach & Assistant General Manager Riley Armstrong and Equipment Manager Jake Rogers are still around and putting their talents to use to help Maine restaurants get through the pandemic.

 From 10 AM – 2 PM, each Saturday between February 13th and March 13th, skaters of all ages can get their skates sharpened and equipment repaired by Rogers at the Cross Insurance Arena, with all proceeds benefiting local restaurants. The Mariners want you to send suggestions for local restaurants in need of assistance through their social media.

“When you’re spending seven days a week in town, you spend a lot of time having lunch at all the great local spots,” said Rogers. “Over the last year I’ve missed a lot of my local spots we’d go to, so where I haven’t been personally affected by COVID, I feel this is a great way to give back to those local restaurants that may be in need of a hand.”

If you want to get those skates and hockey equipment ship-shape just drive up to the temporary parking lane on the Spring Street side of the Cross Insurance Arena on Saturdays between 10 AM and 2 PM and call the equipment office at 207-761-4361, or contact Rogers on social media (@jrogers92 on Twitter, @j.rogers92 on Instagram),  Standard skate sharpening will cost $6 per pair of skates, with all other repairs and requests on a quoted basis. Cash only, please. IN addition, faffle tickets can also be purchased for the chance to win one of two Mariners authentic jerseys as well as Boston Bruins autographed Warrior items. Raffle tickets will cost $10 each, or three for $20.
