To honour the brave soldiers who lost their lives this past week in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Ottawa, and to show appreciation for the men and women whose selfless actions stopped the attackers and aided the victims, the Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs will stage a coordinated tribute Saturday immediately preceding the 7 p.m. ET puck drops at their respective arenas.
The show of solidarity, to be staged simultaneously by the three Canadian teams hosting 7 p.m. ET games at Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata, Ontario, Bell Centre in Montreal and Air Canada Centre in Toronto, will be broadcast live on Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada and on NHL Network in the United States.
In addition, the Air Canada Centre will welcome two members of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment and also a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force as part of the Club’s pre-game tribute to the Canadian Armed Forces.
