NYI TO PLAY GAME IN NORTH BAY
The community of North Bay, Ontario has been crowned Kraft "Hockeyville" 2007 and will host an NHL pre-season game between the Islanders and the AtlantaThrashers on September 17, 2007

The community of North Bay, Ontario has been crowned Kraft "Hockeyville" 2007 and will host an NHL pre-season game between the Islanders and the AtlantaThrashers on September 17, 2007.

The buzzer has sounded on Canada's most spirited competition and North Bay, Ontario has been crowned Kraft Hockeyville 2007. Cameras captured the community's excitement and enthusiasm live on Saturday as host Ron McLean revealed the winning community on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. 

In addition to the coveted Kraft Hockeyville 2007 title and the trophy, North Bay, Ontario wins the once-in-a-lifetime prize of hosting a NHL pre-season game between the Islanders and the Atlanta Thrashers on September 17, 2007.  North Bay will also receive $50,000 to be used for upgrades to the publicly-owned arena that the winning community endorses.

"We're looking forward to it," said Islanders head coach Ted Nolan. "North Bay is one of those towns that are truly hockey country. This is a unique opportunity and I'm sure they'll roll out the red carpet for the Islanders. We consider it a privilege to be a part of it."

To win the bragging rights of being named Kraft Hockeyville 2007, communities from across Canada developed a video up to three minutes in length to showcase their hockey passion and community spirit.  The communities were narrowed down over the last three weeks as Canadians voted to crown this year's champion.  Over the last week, more than 935,000 votes were cast by Canadians for the top five final communities vying for a chance to be named Canada's most passionate hockey community.

North Bay's commitment to community and hockey underlies everything they do.  The community reached out to displaced Hurricane Katrina children by asking them to join their annual pond hockey tournament.  North Bay embraced the unique initiative as sponsors paid for their flights, accommodations and meals during the three-day trip.
