Upset that the Barrie Colts are out of town this weekend playing the Greyhounds Friday and the Wolves on Saturday? Well you should know there is plenty of great hockey events happening here in Barrie this weekend and a part of it will include the Colts this Sunday but we will get to that shortly.
This weekend the Hometown Hockey crew has their people here in town! There will be a wide selection of hockey things to do over this weekend across Barrie. From a hockey circus show to legends like Darryl Sittler and Shayne Corson doing autograph signings. There will be trivia, live music and of course, a chance to get up close and personal with the Stanley Cup! The crew will be here to prepare us for Sundays game on CBC between the Chicago Blackhawks and Winnipeg Jets. Pretty good matchup considering both teams have connections to the Barrie Colts. Roy Radke, born in Chicago is also a draft pick of the teams and I am sure you all know that Winnipeg is full of Colts. From Mark Scheifele to all time points leader for the Colts, Bryan Little and more!
Oh, and Dale Hawerchuk and many of the Colts will be back in town from Sudbury (hopefully with a pair of wins) in time to make an appearance for an autograph session on site at 6:30 on Sunday!
Here is the complete schedule of events this weekend!
And if that wasn't enough hockey for you, here is our personal favourite part of this weekend. The CWHL will be here in town for a game Sunday afternoon!
