Hockey Night in Powell River

Throughout Canada everyone knows about Hockey Night in Canada and its distinctive theme song that was dubbed "Canada's second national anthem." However, when CBC lost the rights it had a contest for a replacement.

We have our own Hockey Night in Powell River. The Kings are Powell River's Junior "A" Hockey Club. Young men from across Canada (and a few from the States) to play for the glory of our home town.


Home games are held at Hap Parker Arena in the Recreation Complex, and great seats are always available.

You will see young, old and everyone in between cheering on our team. And you will meet Rocco, the King's mascot. In his personal Kings uniform, this feisty lion can rouse the team to victory.

Come join us for Hockey Night in Powell River. The games are exciting, the food is tasty (love those chips 'n gravy) and see all your friends in the stands. You might even win the 50-50 draw. Can't make the game? Listen live on Powell River's CoastFM 95.7. -- Margy

  1. What fun to have a night of family entertainment! I watched a lot of hockey growing up, and even learned how to play it a bit, although my brothers always beat me, lol. My dad would make us a homemade skating rink in the backyard, and we spent hours of fun out there. Brought back good memories :) Glad you have a lovely way of getting out and visiting with the community! Hugs to you today :)

    1. My husband Wayne remembers skating in his hometown of Rome, New York, but I came from Southern California. Too warm and sunny there to think about winter sports. But now they have their own hockey team in Los Angeles. Not in my day. - Margy

  2. Ice Hockey is not as popular in the midwest part of the country but I do enjoy seeing it in the Olympics.

  6. I have a hard time tracking the puck when I watch ice hockey on TV. Wonder if it would be different if I saw a live game.
