Come Celebrate Paul Coffey Day!

On Friday, September 23rd, all of Malton is welcome to join in the celebration of the new Paul Coffey Arena and Park! Malton Arena and Wildwood Park have been renamed after Malton's very own home-grown NHL legend, Paul Coffey.

"Paul Coffey Day" will take place at the arena on the evening of the 23rd at 5:00 p.m. A free family ice skate will kick off the festivities. The celebration will include free popcorn, hamburgers, hot dogs, pop and coffee. There will be bouncy castles for kids to enjoy and an open air concert by Hotel California with set times at 6 and 8 p.m. The official renaming ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m. What better way to cap off a celebration than with an amazing fireworks display! This event will be the biggest party Malton has ever seen!

The celebration will also unveil the arena's brand new look! We want all of Malton to come celebrate with Paul Coffey on this very special night, #MaltonEnvy!
