Hockey on the rocks

For the 13th consecutive year, the Rockers fell to the NHL Greats in the JUNO Cup, a hockey game played to celebrate Canada’s talent.

It isn’t really about the game though; it’s for the fans (and that includes the musicians) of the hockey alumnus who show that they’ve still got it on the ice.

Everything from jingles to dangles are on display, be it an original song from Jamie Macoun or a wrist-shot from George Canyon.

There were silent auction items on sale benefiting MusiCounts, a charity that benefits those involved in music education and community work.

While the final score was 12-10 for the NHL Greats, it could have been a lot higher without the help of Jonathan Roy (Son of Patrick Roy, former NHL Goalie) between the pipes.

Highlights included the puck drop by Premier Rachel Notley, and colour commentating from JUNO nominated country artist Brett “Bretzky” Kissel.
