Edmonton paid their respects to Ben Stelter, all of Halifax went to Nathan MacKinnon's Stanley Cup parade and Brent Butt puts a puck to good use around the home. Here's what caught our eye over the past week.

The City Of Edmonton Paid Their Respects To Ben Stelter

After Oilers superfan Ben Stelter tragically passed away earlier this month after his battle with cancer at the age of six, Edmontonians paid their respects in a moving procession outside of Rogers Place. 

Among the many in attendance was Oilers captain Connor McDavid. who wore a special jersey where the letter "B" replaced the captain's "C" on the front.

Rest in Peace, Ben.

All of Halifax Showed Up To Nathan MacKinnon's Stanley Cup Parade

If you were in Halifax this past week, there's a high chance you were at Nathan MacKinnon's Stanley Cup event.

The parade route was jammed, and it looks like more than just a handful of people may have called in sick from work to attend. Productivity in offices and at stores were definitely at an all-time low.

Brent Butt Solves A Problem In The Most Canadian Way

Actor and comedian Brent Butt had an issue with his garbage can rolling away. How did he solve it? By putting a puck to good use.

When did he realize that the puck could solve this issue, and how long did it take to cut the puck in half?

We can't wait to see what other hockey gear he uses to solve issues around the home.
