Chefs serve up hockey dignity to Toronto in celebrity match-up

Fans of food and hockey hit the mark Saturday in the Wellington arena for the The Drake Barn Burner’s Canada 150 celebrations.

All-star chefs from Montreal and Toronto faced off for an exhibition game coached by some hockey greats.

Six-time Stanley Cup and NHL Hall of Famer Ken Dryden was behind the bench for the Montreal Mashers.

Four-time Stanley Cup winner Mike Krushelnyski commanded the Toronto Grinders. Special guests included Jayna Hefford, 12-time world champion and five-time Olympic champion; Jamie Lee Rattray, 2014 Canadian Women’s National Ice Hockey Team an the County’s own Jess Jones, Canadian Women’s Hockey League (Brampton Thunder) and her sister Cailey Jones (PECI Panther OFSAA team captain). Emcee was Steve Anthony.

The Quinte Childrens’ Choir sang O Canada.

As fans sampled gourmet snacks from top restaurants, the Mashers restored some hockey dignity to Toronto, taking down the Montreal Grinders 6-2.

The rivalry ended post game, however, as the chefs combined their efforts to produce a celebration dinner at the Drake Devonshire in Wellington.

Proceeds from the day benefit the Community Food Centres Canada.

Sisters Indira Ramnarine, Bianca Capuano and Joanne Capuano rally for the game.
