"It's awesome getting to use the Try Hockey trailers because hockey's a sport that a lot of people don't have access to on a regular basis,” said Libbie Haller, who organized the event. “It's a sport that if you didn't grow up in a rink yourself, you're probably not going to ever get the chance to.
