It was a full house with 1,199 in attendance at Centennial Arena in Nipawin, Saskatchewan. An emotional start for game one of the Canalta Cup Final Championship Series the evening of Saturday, April 14th. 

A moment of silence was held prior to the game in order to honour of the victims of the collision that took place a week before and to thank local first responders.

The Nipawin Hawks and Estevan Bruins stood shoulder to shoulder, skates planted around the centre circle, alternating teams as a symbol of unity.
