    On Tuesday, the Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings announced that an indoor tailgate party will be occurring at Westoba Place prior to puck drop on this Friday's WHL regular season home opener.

  • For the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Bell MTS Place has continued to open its doors to fans interested in attending road game viewing parties inside the arena.

    The first viewing party took place as the Jets travelled on the road in their first round series in Minnesota, while the latest in-arena viewing party occurred for game seven of the Western Conference Semifinals in Nashville.

    As the Jets have home ice advantage for the remainder of the playoffs, games three and four (and potentially six) of the Western Conference Finals will also be excellent opportunities for fans to attend the viewing parties inside Bell MTS Place.

    Tickets for games three and four are only $10.00 - with all proceeds going towards the True North Youth Foundation.

    Winnipeg Harvest will continue to accept donations of non-perishable food items, and will have bins set up inside each of the arena's four main entrances.

    Earlier this week, it was announced that Brandon's Keystone Centre and the Wheat Kings would be on board with the idea to host whiteout viewing parties of their own for the third round of the playoffs.

    Interestingly enough, those gathered for the whiteout viewing party in Brandon will be cheering against former Head Coach/General Manager and current Owner of the Wheat Kings, Kelly McCrimmon, who is now the Assistant General Manager of the Vegas Golden Knights.

    Westoba Place will open its doors to the public for a family skate prior to puck drop for both game three and four Wednesday and Friday, respectively - Admission is just $5.00.

    "Our community was asking for this and it fit," said Jeff Schumacher, General Manager of Brandon's Keystone Centre. "There are a lot of ties to both teams in this city and region, and the series will be exciting for us all to watch together in our arena."

    Wednesday's game three from Vegas will get underway at approximately 8:20 P.M. central time. For those watching at home, it will be available live on CBC and Sportsnet. Doors open to Bell MTS Place at 7:00 P.M., while family skate begins at the Keystone Centre at 5:00 P.M.
