Every year since 2006, communities in North America have competed to be deemed Kraft Hockeyville. In 2019, the Canadian winner was Renous, New Brunswick. Their reward? A cash prize of $250,000 to upgrade the local rink and the opportunity to host a preseason matchup between the Cats and the Canadiens. The Panthers fell, 4-3, but it was still a fun-filled day that managed to include some serious preparation for the coming season.
