The Crown vs. Defence Game features a silent auction during and after the game (some items close at game end; larger items continue to the end of the after-party) as well as a live auction.
Stellar original art is a highlight of the auction items. Other items include hockey tickets, hockey memorabilia, experiences (meals, golf rounds, etc.) and merchandise.

This year's auction will feature works donated by:
Lucasie Kiatainaq is a twenty year old Inuit from Kangiqsujauq, Nunavik Quebec. While still studying in High School, Lucasie’s talent became apparent and he was urged to pursue photography.
Lucasie works as a Recreational Coordinator in his village, while periodically taking courses from John Abbot College, in Montreal. He takes photographs of his village and of the tundra when hunting and/ fishing but enjoys taking nighttime photographs and photographs of the Northern Lights the most. As a new professional artist, Lucasie is happy to have his work displayed at the Crown vs. Defence Charity Hockey Game for Right To Play Event so that he can contribute to the success of other Indigenous youth.
Dallas LaRose is an established Canadian Artist from Edmonton, Alberta. Dallas is self-taught and has had a natural ability in art from a young age.
Dallas invokes a modern approach to marrying figurative and abstract works. Her work is inspired by textiles, fashion, and nature. Her practice is rooted in saturated colours and a juxtaposition of three dimensional textures and flat expanses of matte colour. Strikingly bold coloured paint smeared gesturally across the canvas creates a new depth to the otherwise two-dimensional work.
Grady Wallace is a stencil and spray paint artist, born in Kamloops, BC. He first started stenciling in 2014 and has been using this technique to create his artwork ever since. Going from basic stencils to heavily detailed layers, with each artwork ranging from 3 to 27 stencils on a single piece. Each layer Grady creates is hand cut.
Gathering inspiration from Canadian wildlife, urban textures, and the streetwear culture are some things that contribute to his unique style of art. Using unconventional canvases is also a trait that Wallace is well known for.
