BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Binghamton Devils will wear a unique uniform during the weekend of January 31 TO February 2.

The B-Devils will be known as the "Broome County Blades" for a short time and will wear the jerseys from the 1977 film, "SlapShot."

The Broome County Blades in the film were based off the Broome Dusters and in one scene, it actually portrayed events that happened in Binghamton.

To help make the announcement on Friday were two actors from the film, Jerry Houser, who played Dave "Killer" Carlson, and Allan Nicholls, who played Jonny Upton.

Allan Nicholls reminisced about how he played hockey as a kid.

"I played as a kid. I'm from Montréal...But when the movie started, I hadn't skate in about 15 years, but then, you know, it didn't take long to come back, and might I point out that I got my first new pair of skates on 'SlapShot,'" said Nicholls.

On Friday, Broome County Executive Jason Garnar proclaimed January 31 to February 2 to be known as Broome County Blades weekend.

The blades jerseys will be auctioned off at the games, proceeds will go toward Sock Out Cancer.
