The tilt was originally scheduled for the outdoor rink at CM Finch, but recent warm temperatures meant the ice was unsuitable for play. The game was moved to the North Peace Arena where families could watch and cheer on their favourite players for free, thanks to the Rotary Club of Fort St. John, who maintains the CM Finch rink. 

The game was played without stoppages and with only four players on the ice for each time, followed by shootout practice. It was clearly a time for some former players to come out of retirement, and younger ones to show off with a little more room. 

Regardless, there was still some friendly competition to keep things interesting.

As an extra special tough, the Huskies wore the jerseys of the Golden Hawks, the team that preceded the pups before their inauguration in 1981.
