Youth Hockey Intermission Game

Ever wonder what it might be like to play in front of 19,000 Bolts Fans? The first intermission of select Lightning Home Games gives your Mite, Squirt, or Peewee hockey players the chance to show off their skills! Afterwards, your team will be able to stick around to cheer on the Bolts as they take on some of the NHL's best teams! This experience is limited to 10 skaters and 2 goalies.

Registration is for teams only.
