Smashfest

Smashfest is a fan-inspired ping-pong party bringing one of the players' favourite dressing room pastimes to hockey fans. Created and hosted by veteran player Dominic Moore, Smashfest is held to support the research and advocacy of two important causes, brain injuries and concussions, and rare cancers.

At Smashfest, guests have the chance to mingle with dozens of players at the historic Steam Whistle Brewery, under the CN Tower in Toronto. 2017 marks the sixth anniversary of Smashfest, to be held on Thursday, July 20th.

Since its inception in 2012, nearly 70 players and other professional athletes have attended, including Logan Couture, Patrick Eaves, Phil Kessel, Mitch Marner, Jeff Skinner, Steven Stamkos, Cam Talbot and many more.
