Canadian NHL teams tweet a rendition of O Canada
It’s too bad Canada Day is in July.
If only it was during hockey season. Better yet, if only it was on Hockey Day in Canada.
The annual event took place once again on Saturday, with all seven Canadian NHL teams in action.
It was a day filled with wonderful hockey stories from around the country. Even Twitter, known as a place for sensationalism and sarcasm, tugged at your heartstrings.
Every Canadian NHL team’s official Twitter accounts helped sing the national anthem. Here’s the result:

Was it contrived? Sure. Was it kind of neat? Certainly.
