Winnipeg hockey fans will have a chance to feel like they’re at the actual NHL Entry Draft this year.
True North Sports and Entertainment is hosting a 2011 NHL Entry Draft Party on Friday, June 24 at MTS Centre, in conjunction with the Draft at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota on June 24 and 25.
The Draft Party will begin at 5 p.m. with a re-broadcast of TSN’s “Countdown to the Draft” showing on the arena’s scoreboard. At 6 p.m., the live broadcast of TSN’s coverage of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft will be shown.
One fan in attendance will win a pair of NHL season tickets for Winnipeg’s unnamed hockey team’s inaugural season.
Tickets for the Draft Party go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. for $10 through Ticketmaster. Children under 12 are $5.
