Michael Bublé is taking center ice.

On Saturday, the four-time Grammy Award-winner put on a performance of the Canadian national anthem ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers game which took place at the Rogers Place in Edmonton.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, though, Bublé, unfortunately, could not be there in person. Instead, he performed at an empty Rogers Arena in his hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. The performance was shown onscreen as players gathered in a circle.

The video was also used at the Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens game.

Fans on Twitter had a lot to say about Bublé singing the national anthem with some pointing out that he did not sing any verse in French.

“Michael Buble signing the Canadian anthem entirely in English before a Habs game is not cool,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Canada keeps Michael Bublé on ice until they need him for national anthem…or its Christmas. True story,” another said.
