We understand that there will be many questions from everyone, and we appreciate your patience as we work through the details. We will continue to update you through our website and Facebook event page over the coming weeks.

Our first priority is the health and safety of all of you, our Hockey Heroes Weekend players, the NHL alumni, and our sponsors, spectators, special guests, volunteers, employees and partners.

If you or a loved one are living with heart disease or stroke, we invite you to read this article about Coronavirus, heart disease and stroke.

Thank you for your continued support today and every day. See you on the ice soon!

Hockey Heroes Weekend is a unique fundraiser in support of Heart & Stroke that gives 16 local teams a once-in-a-lifetime chance to share the ice with their NHL Heroes while fundraising for heart and stroke research in Canada

About the Event

Hockey Heroes Weekend is an exhilarating and deeply rewarding hockey experience where teams come together for a jam-packed weekend alongside legendary NHL alumni, as they celebrate their dedicated fundraising and support of Heart & Stroke.

  • Hockey Heroes Weekend begins Friday night with a Draft Night where teams cash in their funds and draft their favourite alumni. As the evening goes on, teams submit their remaining donations and grapple for the highest total, which earns them first draft pick.
  • Game play starts early Saturday, as teams face off against one another, joined on the ice by their drafted NHL Alumni. As part of the tournament, players enjoy VIP locker rooms, custom jerseys and socks, and the chance to spend quality time with their own Hockey Heroes.
  • Games continue through the weekend, with a special Social Night on Saturday evening.
  • To cap off an incredible weekend, top individual fundraisers play the final game with all NHL Alumni players on Sunday’s Heart Heroes Game.
