Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome was absolutely packed on Saturday night, and it wasn’t because of a hockey game or a big-time country music concert, it was for one of TV’s most-loved talk-show hosts, Ellen DeGeneres.

Hosted by Calgarian TV personality Dave Kelly, A Conversation With Ellen DeGeneres gave attendees the opportunity to see the Finding Nemo voice actor answer an in-depth Q&A session about life and love during this live one-night-only show on April 21.

Degeneres brought her quick wit and punchy sense of humour to the show, but first, she brought a hockey stick on stage in honour of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team, which lost 16 of its players and staff in a tragic bus accident earlier this month.

The comedian stepped on stage and took a moment to kiss the stick before joining Kelly in the chairs centre stage for the remainder of the event, where she conquered the hearts of tens of thousands of Calgarians.
