Steelheads to Host Inaugural Bleed Blue Game-Friday, March 8
The Steelheads are proud to announce the team’s first ever Bleed Blue game presented by GoodLife Fitness will be held on Friday, March 8th when the club faces off against the Hamilton Bulldogs.
“Since 1979, it has been GoodLife Fitness’ vision to provide every Canadian with the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life. For over 7 years, GoodLife Fitness has been a proud sponsor of the Mississauga Steelheads, bringing our vision to life in the GTA!

As a loyal partner, GoodLife Fitness is proud to offer 7-day trials to all fans. Get yours today by visiting the GoodLife Fitness booth during the game on March 8th. ”
This year the Steelheads have teamed up with Hockey Gives Blood in partnership with Canadian Blood Services. Hockey Gives Blood is a non-profit society founded by four former hockey players in an effort to motivate, inspire and educate young hockey players to support patients in need of blood and blood products.
For the March 8th game, the Steelheads will be wearing one of a kind Bleed Blue jerseys. Hockey Gives Blood Co-founder Stu Middleton comments, “A first in the Ontario Hockey League; the ‘Bleed Blue’ jersey’s will be proudly worn by the Mississauga Steelheads to help score the ultimate goal. Cheer for us March 8, 2019, as we team up to support Canadian Blood Services.” The specially-designed Bleed Blue jerseys will be auctioned off following the game and all proceeds will be donated to Canadian Blood Services in support of Hockey Gives Blood. Funds raised will be used to inspire fellow members of the hockey community to join in our efforts to improve the life-saving products and services of Canadian Blood Services.
The game will see the Trout take on Eastern Conference rival and defending OHL Champion, the Hamilton Bulldogs. The Steelheads will be looking to avenge their February 13th shootout loss to the Bulldogs that ended their three-game win streak. Arthur Kaliyev is one to watch for in this game, the forward has 47 goals on the year and is a projected first-round pick in this summer’s 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
