For the Americans out there, Kraft Hockeyville is a yearly contest put on by Sportsnet that celebrates hockey in small-town Canada. Once a year, four towns are picked as finalists and voted for by the masses. The winner gets an NHL exhibition game in the town and $250k to put towards building a new arena and community centre. This year, the town that I was born and raised in won, receiving over 9 million votes and the support of local hero Scott Moir (the Olympic ice-dancing legend who grew up in a house just east of the town, a house I have been to before and driven past many times) and San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture (who's from the town and played hockey in the community centre growing up).

Needless to say, I'm very happy that my home is getting some recognition for things aside from terrible weather and brutal murders in the 1880s and that the community centre will be getting some TLC so it can play host to coming generations of aspiring hockey greats.

Cool! As an ex-hockey player (quit playing when I turned 50 more than 20 years ago) who grew up in a small town I know this is a big deal for the community.

That's truly awesome! What an amazing achievement. It's cool that the community centre is going to get fixed up for even more future generations to enjoy.  Congrats!
