Brampton Welcomes OHL’s Steelheads: A New Era of Hockey Begins

Hockey, Canada’s national sport, finds a new home in Brampton with the Steelheads. This marks a significant milestone for Brampton, Peel Region, and the broader community. The Steelheads will play at the CAA Centre, reigniting the city’s passion for OHL hockey.

The Brampton Steelheads will host their home opener on Friday, September 27, at the CAA Centre. Fans are encouraged to come out, experience an exhilarating game of hockey, and cheer on their new team.

“Hockey is a beloved sport in our community and across our great country. I am excited to welcome the Steelheads to Brampton and will be cheering them on from the first puck drop. The OHL has an exciting history of producing 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!” added — Patrick Brown, Mayor, City of Brampton
