On Saturday, January 20th, members of the Guelph Storm visited the winners of the 2017-18 The Home Depot Backyard Rink contest, Dave & Heather Lylyk, to have some fun with local kids.
Garrett McFadden, James McEwan, Nate Schnarr, Zach Poirier, and Keegan Stevenson played with over 50 young hockey players who came out for some fun on the backyard rink, with snowball fights and laughs in between.
The Home Depot and the Storm team up every year to offer outdoor rink makers the chance to face off against their favourite players in what is always the biggest game on the block.
This year, the Lylyks, with an incredible backyard rink, were the winners, hosting a great day for hockey with friends and neighbours with warm drinks and treats, all on what was Hockey Day in Canada.
The Guelph Storm would like to thank The Home Depot for making this possible, and the Lylyks for being such gracious hosts. Check out all the fun from the event in the gallery below.
