The second annual Christmas Classic charity hockey game took place on December 22 at the Castlegar Community Complex.

Local recording artist Shawn Hook played in the game and sang the national anthem. The guest referee is former NHL player and Nelson native Pat Price. Price, a solid two way defender, played 15 seasons in the league mostly with Quebec, New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins.

“This is a local event put on to raise money for minor hockey and get some non-perishable items for the food bank,” said organizer Bergen Price.

Admission to the game was free but people were urged to bring something for the food bank and a donation for minor hockey.
