Due to inclement weather, the Sens Foundation, Energizer® and the NHL® will move the inaurgural Energizer Night Skate to the Rink of Dreams at Marion Dewer Plaza in Ottawa. The Rideau Canal Skateway, the original location for the event, has been closed by the National Capital Commission due to poor ice conditions.
The newly constructed Rink of Dreams at Marion Dewer Plaza at Ottawa City Hall will provide a picturesque alternate venue for this event. The LED lighting in addition to the hundreds of skaters with headlamps will be a symbol of the positive energy from our community supporting this event. Under the blanket of the night sky, headlights worn by families, friends and hockey fans will light the way as they skate on the newly constructed Rink of Dreams to raise money to construct outdoor ice rinks in eastern Ontario and western Quebec.
Participating in the event as the celebrity emcee will be Hockey Night in Canada personality P.J. Stock

alternate captain Jason Spezza

alumni Shean Donovan
