The hockey season is finally here and CBC wants you to be a part of the action!

Help us kick things off by tweeting your love for the game during the 2011 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off festival on Oct. 6.

We invite passionate hockey fans to join the NHL’s season-opening party on Twitter by using the #NHLFaceOff hashtag when tweeting about all things hockey.  

CBC fan favourite and festival host George Stroumboulopoulos will lead the Twitter conversation live from The Forks in Winnipeg.  

Tell George (@strombo) why you love your favourite team or send him a picture of you wearing your favourite hockey jersey.

Your tweets could make it on the air during CBC’s broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada.
