Chief Young Eagle Recreation Centre in Elsipogtog First Nation, New Brunswick
Elsipogtog First Nation, one of Atlantic Canada's largest First Nation communities, has always considered their arena as a catalyst for connection. Since it opened its doors in 1979, their rink played a special multi-functional role in the community. In addition to hockey, it has been used for community meetings, dances, and even boxing matches. But the primary function has always been to play hockey. Some members of the community feel that the racism or daily challenges faced by First Nations fuel their commitment to the game and constant drive to play harder and better. Elsipogtog First Nations would use the $250,000 prize to repair significant structural damage to their arena which remains inoperable today.
The Kraft Hockeyville 2021 grand prize winner will have an opportunity to host an NHL® Preseason Game and receive $250,000 for arena upgrades. The remaining community finalists will also be awarded $25,000 each for arena upgrades and the winner and each of the three-runner up communities will receive $10,000 to purchase brand new hockey equipment for their minor hockey programs, courtesy of the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund.
