Boston Garden legend Rene Rancourt isn’t letting the NHL lockout keep him quiet.
Rancourt has agreed to a one game ATO (Anthem Tryout Agreement) with the Worcester Sharks for Sunday, Dec. 16, when the Sharks host the Portland Pirates at 3 p.m. at the DCU Center in Worcester.
“I would like to thank the Worcester Sharks for the opportunity to stay in shape during the NHL work stoppage,” Rene Rancourt said, according to the Sharks Website. “I look forward to get my vocal cords back in game shape in the AHL and look forward to making my Sharks debut at the DCU Center on December 16.”
“The Sharks are excited to have an NHL-caliber voice singing the national anthem before the Sharks game on December 16,” said Sharks president Michael A. Mudd. “We are thrilled to give Rene Rancourt the opportunity to work on his famous fist pumps and salute at the DCU Center in Worcester.”
