Next Gen Applications

Attention fans, mark your calendars for Monday, February 21! This Family Day, the Petes can pack 50% of the PMC in their first home game matchup against the Barrie Colts. This matinee game also marks the second Next Gen game of the season, where the entire in-arena experience is taken over by the kids. 

Off the ice, families can enjoy kid-friendly entertainment throughout the lobbies including a meet and greet with mascots, a scavenger hunt around the PMC and throwback videos and photos of their favourite Petes from their minor hockey years.

Do you have a child in your life that has always wanted to coach the Petes or has wanted to get on the mic at the Peterborough Memorial Centre? Maybe they’re interested in pursuing a career in broadcast. This and many more opportunities will also be possible during our Next Gen game this Monday, February 21 against the Barrie Colts!
