West Lorne Arena Kraft Hockeyville
West Lorne is competing to win the grand prize and be named 2023 Kraft Hockeyville Champions!

On March 11, 2023, Kraft Heniz, in partnership with the National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Hockey League Player’s Association (NHLPA) announced West Lorne Arena, located in West Lorne Ontario as one of only four arenas across Canada competing to win the Grand prize and title of Kraft Hockeyville 2023.

Kraft Hockeyville has been a prominent goal for all local hockey arenas across the country for the last 17 years.  The program is dedicated to building stronger, more connected, and inclusive communities across the country through the love of the game of hockey. The program relies on communities rallying and showing their spirit in order to win.

West Lorne is the only Ontario town in the nation-wide competition. If successful, West Lorne would be awarded $250, 000, as well as the opportunity to host an NHL game.  The community is already rallying on the national stage and is ready to represent Ontario! 

All Canadians from coast-to-coast can play a role in determining the winner of Kraft Hockeyville 2023 by voting for one of the Top 4 communities online at krafthockeyville.ca. Voting opens on March 31 at 9:00 a.m. ET and closes on April 1 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Votes per person are unlimited but can only be cast on the website during the voting phase. The winner will be announced live on Hockey Night in Canada the evening of April 1 following the conclusion of the voting phase.
