The Peterborough Petes will play back-to-back home games for the only time this season as both the Flint Firebirds and Niagara IceDogs make the trip to the Lift Lock City.
On Saturday at 7:05pm the Petes will recognize the tenth anniversary of Bell Let’s Talk and engage in open discussion about mental health, encouraging mindfulness and promoting simple ways to join the conversation about mental health. The first 2,000 fans who enter the PMC will receive a toque courtesy of Bell Let’s Talk. They will also be handing out clappers to fans who visit their booth.

The Peterborough Pop Ensemble will be singing the national anthem and will performing a tribute to Barb Monahan, a Petes fan and founder and director of the ensemble who passed away late in 2019.
The Ennismore Eagles IP Gold will take to the ice for a mini-game, while Champions Cheer Gym will host a second intermission chuck-a-puck with a gift basket up for grabs for the winner.
On Sunday afternoon at 2:05pm, the Petes will welcome the Niagara IceDogs for SickKids Night for a makeup game, previously scheduled for December 14. The match up marks the first time that Akil Thomas will face his former team since being acquired by the Petes last week.
A pre-game ceremony will feature Oliver, a young boy from Peterborough who has been treated at SickKids with a severe form of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bone disease), and his family.
During the first intermission of the game Wawanesa, who is the sponsor for the afternoon’s game, will be hosting a remote control car race for a few lucky fans in attendance. In the second intermission, fans can purchase a chuck-a-puck in support of SickKids.
Fans are encouraged to bring their skates to take part in a post-game skate. Petes players will be on the ice signing autographs and taking photos with fans. Fans hoping to get on the ice must have skates and are encouraged to wear a helmet.
