Hockeyville Top 2 communities announced

Voting is officially open for the top 2 communities in the running to be crowned Kraft Hockeyville in 2014.

Voting period ends Monday at midnight ET

From thousands of entries, to the top 16, to the final four, Canada now has just two communities left in the running to be crowned as Kraft Hockeyville in 2014.

Now it’s up to you to decide just who that will be.

Hockey Night In Canada host Ron MacLean announced the two finalists live during Saturday night's broadcast, with this year's edition of the annual contest taking on an East vs. West theme.

One community from Western Canada and one community from Eastern Canada have won $100,000 in arena upgrades, but only one will get a visit from CBC, the chance to host a preseason NHL game, and the honour of being crowned Kraft Hockeyville:

Western Canada

  • Medican Multi-plex - Sylvan Lake, Alta.

Eastern Canada

  • Credit Union Centre - Kingston, N.S.

The third and fourth place communities from the second round of voting won’t go away empty-handed; they will receive $50,000 for arena upgrades.

The community at the top of this final round of voting, which opened Saturday and ends on Monday at 11:59 p.m. ET, will decide the 2014 winner of Kraft Hockeyville.

Voting is simple, just go online to, which is available on your computer and mobile devices.
