CBS Hockeyville = St. John’s Hockeyville?

The Town of Conception Bay South announced Wednesday that the Kraft Hockeyville 2011 NHL pre-season game between the Ottawa Senators and the Winnipeg Jets on Sept. 26 will be moved to the Mile One Centre in St. John’s.

Mile One can accommodate 10 times the fans.
