biographical info

The Puckhogs are Sean Barrette, Brent Wohlberg and Chris Leblanc. They are all great singer / songwriters in their own right, but recently collaborated to pen "For The Love of The Game"  which was runner up in the Hockey Night in Canada Song Quest Competition! As a result, the trio have decided to record an album of original music together! They also put "For The Love of The Game" up for sale at thepuckhogs.bandcamp.com and are donating all the proceeds up to $5000 to the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program. This program helps less fortunate kids across Canada participate in organized sports by providing funding for entry fees and equipment. For as little as $1 you can help the Puckhogs reach their goal! It is a "pay what you want" campaign .. so $1 is the minimum. Please give generously! 

 

Here are the lyrics for "For The Love of The Game" 

 

played since we were just kids

just what everybody did

got a stick, grabbed a puck 

all part of growin' up 

nothings changed, for our love of the game

 

slapshots crack in the night 

another game under yellow street lights

backyard rinks shovelled clean 

a Canadian dream, we stand guard 

 

Because it's hockey night in Canada man

whether we're on the ice or we're sittin' in the stands

watching our kids as they tear down the ice 

we lay claim, to our love of the game 

 

Some of us can't really skate

some of us just might be the next greats 

don't have to be the next Gretzky or Howe 

'cause when that puck fever hits we need a game right now

 

It's always hockey night in Canada man

whether we're on the ice or we're sittin' in the stands

watching our kids as they tear down the ice 

chirpin' the ref when a call isn't right

It's always hockey night in Canada man

whether we're on the ice or we're sittin in the stands

watching our kids as they tear down the ice 

we lay claim to our love of the game

 

It's played 'round the world today 

but it's OUR game no one can take that away 

where there's ice you're gonna hear us say 

"we're Canadian EH! So come on let's play" 

 

It's always hockey night in Canada man

whether we're on the ice or we're sittin in the stands

watching our kids as they tear down the ice 

chirpin' the ref when a call isn't right

It's always hockey night in Canada man

whether we're on the ice or we're sittin in the stands

watching our kids as they tear down the ice 

we lay claim to our love of the game

It's always hockey night in Canada man

It's always hockey night in Canada man

It's always hockey night in Canada man

It's always hockey night in Canada man fade out...
