The $30,000 investment by Hockey Canada gives 31 children aged six to ten who can’t play hockey due to financial barriers the ability to play. Children were supplied with full body equipment courtesy Bauer and a year’s worth of minor hockey fees paid for.

They will be given lunch, on ice time with Hockey Canada coaches as well as off ice activates. Everything wraps up by 1:30 p.m. so they can attend the opening  U-17 Hockey Championship game at the Encana Event Centre, with tickets and food voutures provided for them.”
