The 67's embark on two big missions today.

The team is in Peterborough and will attempt to take the lead in the fifth game of their OHL conference quarter-final against the Petes.

In the other, bidding begins this morning in the Hockey Country Auction, with proceeds going to Sebastien Savage and his family.

On-line bidding at www.hockeycountryauction.ca begins at 9 a.m. and ends April 14.

Sharon Mayne-Dalke of the 67's estimates some 170 items of sports memorabilia have been donated.

"But the site is constantly being updated with new items being added as we receive them," she said.

The auction is being held to raise money for Savage, a St. Albert native and former 67's player, who was paralyzed last October after crashing into the boards while playing for the University of Moncton.

The money will help Savage's family with the cost of Sebastien's rehabilitation.
