Kraft exec congratulates Conception Bay South
As fans made their way around the Stanley Cup Jamboree, they were addressed by Jack Hewitt, the Vice President of Marketing Services for Kraft Canada.

Hewitt expressed his heartfelt congratulations to this small, passionate town that earned more than 995,000 votes to win a competition that began with 653 communities. To honor the remarkable accomplishment, the folks here will be treated with festivities throughout the weekend that will culminate with Monday's preseason game between the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators.

"Your pride, passion, dedication and commitment got you the title of Kraft Hockeyville 2011. Congratulations," Hewitt told the hundreds of rabid fans in attendance. "We have a great weekend planned for you. You're going to have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy it."
Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.

— Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Brandon Saad, who was traded by Chicago to the Columbus Blue Jackets this offseason
