"Hockey Day in Saskatchewan" is also being celebrated this week, as a West Central team played last night in the host city of Martensville as part of the planned Hockey Saskatchewan festivities:

In last night's game the Chiefs kept it close through the first period, but ended up dropping another one to move their record to 12-14-2.
That’ll do from Martensville!— Delisle Chiefs (@Delisle_Chiefs) January 19, 2023

Hockey Day In Saskatchewan is an annual event that is held on the third weekend of January, with the goal of becoming an annual event that provides the host community with a fundraising platform to assist in the financing of local rink improvements or a new facility. It also works to promote the game of hockey, build community spirit by making the arena the focal point of activity, and celebrate the many volunteers who assist in keeping local hockey active in their community.
Martensville's goal is to raise over $90,000 towards their $4 million fundraising goal for the construction of a single-ice-surface arena.
