The Ultimate Hockey Fan Experience

Back in November, I received an invite for an “BDubs Alive Event” at Buffalo Wild Wings in Oakville. I was allowed to bring a friend, so I decided to call up my buddy Stephen, who I don’t see too often. He was all for heading out for some beer and wings.

Darcy Tucker

Toronto Maple Leafs alumni Darcy Tucker was going to make a surprise appearance, to take pictures with, sign autographs, and give out prizes… but Stephen didn’t know that.

BDUBS craig and darcy

With wall-to-wall TVs, to incredible wings and great beer selection, Buffalo Wild Wings is an exciting place to watch your favourite NHL team on the ice. The scene is alive, and the fans are passionate. This Leafs season, Buffalo Wild Wings is bringing 10 unforgettable fan events to the GTA, that are guaranteed to bring the gameday hockey viewing experience to life.


Darcy surprised Tom, a Zamboni driver and youth hockey coach, with a signed Tucker jersey, some game used gloves, and then watched the game with him while having some of BDubs finest wings. But that wasn’t all… Darcy gave one of the youth on Tom’s team donation for their team.

Talk about bringing the awesome!

Getting Wendy’s Hat Signed

I had met Darcy at an event a year earlier, and he signed my TML hat.

Tucker was Wendy’s favourite hockey player when he was with Toronto. So before I left the house that night, I put Wendy’s pink TML hat in a bag and took it with me. I got Darcy Tucker to sign it.

The Mobile Fan Zone was also there. It’s pretty cool – like you are actually in the Leafs’ locker room! Seeing it towed by a Ford F-350 made it even better! We were given some signed photographs and TML vehicle flags.

A Great Night

Nothing says Canada more than hockey. It’s Canada’s favourite sport. I think it’s pretty awesome that Buffalo Wild Wings partnered with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The experience they are giving fans this season is amazing!

“Hockey and BDubs goes great together in Canada.” ~ Darcy Tucker
