Crooner Michael Buble won't be at Oval hockey event

Burnaby crooner Michael Buble won't be participating in this weekend's Celebrity Ball Hockey game after all.

Buble was one of the big names announced for the Richmond Celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada event scheduled for Saturday.

"Unfortunately, I am unable to attend Hockey Day in Canada next Saturday...A personal obligation came up that I had forgotten about and I have to go out of the country. I'm truly sorry that I can't attend. I was very much looking forward to it, as my time playing ballhockey competitively brings back fond memories. I wish all the players luck and I hope the event is a great success for everyone," Buble wrote in a statement.
