The pre-season NHL game to be hosted by O’Leary, P.E.I. as part of the Kraft Hockeyville competition, will be played at Credit Union Place in Summerside, P.E.I.
O’Leary was announced as the winner on April 1 by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.
As part of the victory, the O’Leary Community Sports Centre will receive $100,000 for upgrades to the arena.
The other part of the prize is the pre-season game, to be played between the Ottawa Senators and New Jersey Devils on Sept. 25.
“We looked at all possible options for the game once O’Leary was announced the winner to just ensure that there’s the best possible experience for O’Leary as the winning community,” said Linda Ferrandini, senior marketing manager for Kraft Heinz Canada.
“Not hosting the game, I think it was a win-win situation,” said Della Sweet, a member of the O’Leary Hockeyville committee.
