Mighty Med Stars Bradley Steven Perry and Jake Short to Appear at Disney XD Rink Rats Hockey Festival

The Disney XD Rink Rats Hockey Festival will have a two-man advantage this February as stars of the network’s hit series Mighty Med make an appearance at the sold out event. Embracing the Canadian hockey spirit, Bradley Steven Perry and Jake Short will attend the upcoming full-day competition on February 8 at the Magna Centre in Newmarket, ON, to sign autographs for fans before dropping the ceremonial puck and presenting the trophy for the tournament’s championship game. The festival begins with round robin play commencing at 8:30 a.m. and the autograph signing will start at 4 p.m. sharp.

Mighty Med chronicles the unpredictable adventures of Kaz (Perry) and Oliver (Short), teenage best friends who land after-school jobs of a lifetime at Mighty Med, a secret hospital for superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy characters. There, they discover that their favourite superheroes are real and secretly live among them. Without powers of their own, these seemingly ordinary boys’ extensive knowledge of superheroes prove to be surprisingly valuable and help them to become heroes themselves while helping save the people who save people. Mighty Med airs Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. ET on Disney XD and fans can learn more about the live-action comedy series by visiting
In addition to the autograph signing, interactive games and activities will be running for the entire family. The OMHA Events team will be on hand with a mini-stick rink and the Matt Duchene Shootout Challenge. While the event is sold out, the OMHA is still accepting applications to be placed on a waiting list. 
The Disney XD Rink Rats Hockey Festival was created as part of an initiative between Disney XD Canada and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) that provides teams and their families at the house and local league level an opportunity to participate in a memorable event that contributes to the development of amateur hockey players at the grassroots level.
