The Sens Rink of Dreams will be closed to public skating from 11 am to noon on Saturday, February 8 for a special shinny game between the Ottawa Senators Alumni and NHL Alumni. In addition, the rink will close for two 45-minute children’s skating clinics, called Perfect Skate, on Saturday at 9 am and Sunday at 10 am.
The game and clinics are part of the Rogers Hometown Hockey festivities taking place at City Hall’s Marion Dewar Plaza from February 7 to 9.
The weekend event will feature live bands, games, autograph sessions with NHL alumni and a viewing of the Stanley Cup. The event will conclude on Sunday evening with the Rogers Hometown Hockey telecast of the Winnipeg Jets and Chicago Blackhawks game, with live pre-game and intermission broadcasts from Marion Dewar Plaza.
