- 5:30 PM – All-Star Player’s Pre-Game Meal
- 7:00 PM – All-Star Warm-Up
- 7:30 PM – All-Star Game
Kicking off the night, the players will be treated to a pre-game meal at 5:30 PM hosted by the Tillsonburg Hurricanes.
The event will be following the style of having a Team North America (Canada and United States players) and a Team World, seeing players represent any country that is not in North America. This is a great format as sometimes it happens that teammates matched up against each other during big tournaments.
The All-Star Game will begin at 7:30 PM with national anthems and a statement from the Greater Metro Hockey League. The puck will then be dropped within three 20 minute periods. The Tillsonburg Hurricanes will be hosting 50/50 draws amongst the all-star festivities.
Each intermission will feature a skills competition-style event for the fans to enjoy and the players to show their talents and skills. During this time, the audience can take a bathroom break or visit our snack booth outside the arena.
The GMHL All-Star game has always been popular for recruiters and scouts from higher levels of the game. With this, the management may take the opportunity to search for the next best players to invite to their team.
