Drake didn’t have to travel far from home to perform for one of Canada’s lauded sports teams Sunday (Jan. 29). The 25-year-old rapper displayed his lyrical talents during the 2012 Tim Horton’s NHL All-Star Game at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, Canada. Wearing a custom NHL jersey emblazoned with his name, Drizzy moved through his ‘Take Care’ hit ‘Headlines’ after meeting some of the hockey players.

“If you’re proud to be Canadian tonight, I want to hear you make some noise one time,” the Toronto native shouted. “Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Drake. I grew up on the sport that we are here celebrating this evening, and this is one of the greatest honors I’ve ever received. NHL All-Stars 2012, are you ready?”

With the lights dimmed low in the arena, Drake rapped through his verses with ease while his DJ and the signature OVO owl he’s recognized for were positioned behind him.

Before he made his way to the center of the arena, the rap entertainer took time to shake the hands of nearly every hockey player in the locker room. He posed for photos with the sports stars and even showed excitement over meeting them. “It’s an honor,” Drake explained. “I grew up playing hokey. I used to play right wing.”
