You won’t want to miss out!”
There are plenty of reasons to be in Regina for the festivities during the Family Day long weekend:

The Regina Pats Family Day celebrations will be produced in conjunction with BaAM Productions whose world-class team has been an integral part of producing all of the NHL outdoor games as well as major events for the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball. “We take pride in connecting people with great experiences,” says Annemarie Roe, President of BaAM Productions, “the Pats Homecoming Weekend and Family Day Celebrations will be a weekend to remember for years to come.”
The Regina Pats cordially invite you to join them in delivering a salute to our military during the Community Foundation Honours dinner and auction on February 16, 2018.
With Canada’s entry in the First World War in 1914, many of the greatest hockey heroes of the day quickly answered the call of duty to serve their country on the front lines of Europe. After the war’s end, the Memorial Cup was created to memorialize a generation of talented players who gave their lives in service to preserve our freedom.
Named after Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, the Regina Pats have a 100-year history of hockey dedicated in the name of those who sacrificed for all Canadians. To begin the 100-day countdown to the Memorial Cup, the Regina Pats will celebrate their heritage along with NHL and WHL alumni by hosting a prestigious evening of events intended to highlight the importance of their military connections to the upcoming Memorial Cup Celebrations. Fifty of the greatest living NHL players who either come from Saskatchewan or who have played in the WHL will be in attendance–there to celebrate our proud heritage with us.
The All-Star Celebrity Classic outdoor hockey game on February 17, 2018 will be an event to remember.
NHL and WHL alumni will make up Team Saskatchewan and Team WHL in an exciting game of hockey outdoors at the new Mosaic Stadium in Regina. In partnership with Rogers Hometown Hockey, BaAM Productions, Warm up to Waskimo and Thirty6 Events, the Regina Pats Centennial Salute organizing committee invites you to a Saturday full of activities for the whole family including opportunities to meet Saskatchewan hockey heroes; a day you will not want to miss!
The Rogers Fan Hub will provide a uniquely Canadian experience, engaging true sports fanatics of all ages. Photo opportunities, heritage displays, obstacle courses and pick-up games are just the tip of the iceberg.

The Regina Pats Outdoor Classic will be a WHL game for the history books on February 18, 2018.
