Hockey in Brampton

Brampton is home to more than 20 community hockey leagues operating across 19 indoor ice pads. The City has 9 outdoor rinks offering free ice time and dedicated hockey shinny times during the winter months along with numerous recreation skate programs. This provides residents with a variety of opportunities to play and grow in the sport. 

Brampton is also home to one of the largest charity hockey games in Canada, Hockey Night in Brampton, which welcomes NHL all-stars and hockey legends on the ice to support Osler Health System and other worthy causes. 


 “Hockey is a beloved sport in our community, and across our great country. I am excited to welcome the Steelheads to Brampton and I will be cheering them on from the first puck drop. The OHL has an exciting history of producing the great talent in NHL history from Bobby Orr to Wayne Gretzky to John Tavares to Connor McDavid. I encourage everyone to come out and show your support on September 27 as the Steelheads step on the ice for the first time in Brampton!”  
Patrick Brown, Mayor, City of Brampton
 “We are thrilled about the next chapter in Steelheads hockey! We will be proud to bring our Championship hockey to our new home and even more proud to do so as the Brampton Steelheads.”
