"There will definitely be a lot of reflection backstage before we step on the ice knowing that, as much as we will be feeling the emotion as ambassadors and figureheads for Winnipeg's Ukrainian community, it's incumbent upon us to to walk onto the stage and perform as we can and make sure that our song is heard loud and wide," said Christopher Sklepowich, tenor with the Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus.

The Jets have asked the group to sing the Canadian and Ukrainian national anthems at the game.
