Burger Week 2017 Recap!

This Year’s Burger Week Was a Tremendous Success!

The numbers are in and Burger Week 2017 was the BIGGEST. ONE. YET. This couldn’t have been achieved without the help and collaboration of our sponsors, participating restaurants, and all of you who made sure to try as many of the burgers as possible! Take a look at our infographic to see just how successful it was.

And Let’s Make Sure 2018 is EVEN BIGGER!

The 2017 QMJHL Entry Draft is coming to Harbour Station!

Saint John has the great honour of hosting it’s first QMJHL Entry Draft at Harbour Station on Saturday, June 3rd! “The 2017 QMJHL Annual Session and Entry Draft will be a great way for us to showcase future NHL stars and talented hockey players in Saint John,” said Giles Courteau, the league’s commissioner.

The QMJHL Entry Draft is by far the most extravagant CHL Draft, replicating what the NHL does. All 18 teams will have a table on the floor while players from all over Eastern Canada will be in attendance hoping to hear their names called.
