Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

In this difficult and challenging time, we must act to take care of each other and our community. As such, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to cancel the Hockey Heroes Weekend 2020 in the following three locations:

  • Halifax, April, 24th to 26th
  • Saskatoon, May, 1st to 3rd
  • St John’s, May 22nd to 24th

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!
