The Ottawa Senators will be hosting their annual Indigenous Peoples Appreciation Night on Tuesday, December 6th, when they take on the Los Angeles Kings.
Before the puck drops, the Sens will be hosting a hockey clinic for Akwesasne youth through the “First Assist” program. They will also be hosting an open skate for Indigenous children.
There will also be an Indigenous artisans market along the 200-level concourse of the Canadian Tire Centre starting when doors open at 5 pm, along with a smudging ceremony.
Indigenous-themed Ottawa Senators t-shirts are also available once again this year. The shirts are once again designed by artist Jay Odjick of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, with funds raised going to support Indigenous communities in the region.
