The 20th edition of Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada took place in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, on February 8, 2020, hosted by the City of Yellowknife and the Yellowknives Dene First Nation.
On February 5, Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada hosted an opening event to get the celebrations started. The four-day hockey festival showcased community and family-friendly hockey events for all ages, all leading into the main event — the 12.5-hour broadcast on Sportsnet — February 8.
The festivities centred around the event’s 20th anniversary, with an emphasis on Canada’s Great White North. Scotiabank Teammates Lanny McDonald, Cassie Campbell-Pascall and Darcy Tucker attended, along with other special guests, including Sportsnet personalities.
Somba K’e Park, Yellowknife’s favourite gathering place located on the shores of Frame Lake in front of City Hall, provided the backdrop to the outdoor broadcast.
