Calgary, AB – Calgary Hitmen defenceman Dylan Yeo will sing the Canadian national anthem on Tuesday, March 20th when the Calgary Flames host the Detroit Red Wings at 7 p.m.
Yeo’s appearance will mark the second time this season the Hitmen captain has performed in the Pengrowth Saddledome. Yeo sang the national anthem on October 6th, 2006 before the Hitmen played host to the Kootenay Ice.
“Dylan did such a great job the first time that we had several requests from fans to let him do it again,” said Hitmen Director of Business Operations Kip Reghenas.
“This is also a great opportunity on the NHL stage to highlight some of the unique personalities and talents of some of our Hitmen players.”
Yeo is in his fourth season in the Western Hockey League, third in Calgary. The 20-year-old had 31 points this season and led the Hitmen in plus/minus with a +27.
