IN PHOTOS: Hockey Day in Canada at Somba K’e Civic Plaza


Yellowknifers came out to Somba K’e Civic Plaza in big numbers Saturday for the final day of celebrations for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada.

Travelling in a dog-powered canoe across Frame Lake, Calgary Flames legend and hall of famer Lanny McDonald kicked off the day by bringing the Stanley Cup to the park this morning.

Hockey fans lined up to meet McDonald and other NHL greats, including Paul Coffey and Wendel Clark.

A couple false starts couldn’t stop the cup from coming to eager hockey fans at Somba K’e Civic Plaza Saturday.

As the Yellowknifer’s crime reporter, it’s my job to keep readers up to speed on all-things “cops and courts” related. From house fires and homicides to courtroom clashes, it’s my responsibility to be there - day or night, rain or shine. When I’m not at court gathering stories, I’m in the office, making calls to lawyers, emailing RCMP and tracking down sources. After hours, I rely on the public to let me know what’s happening and where. Entering my second winter in Yellowknife since leaving my hometown of Peterborough, Ont., in October 2017, everyday on this beat continues to be challenging, rewarding and fulfilling. Got a story?
