Drake is Canadian and he is better than Madonna, so sounds like a smart PR move to me by the NHL.
As long as the check clears, rappers will perform anywhere.
The 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa, Ontario will feature performances from Grammy Award-nominated and multi-platinum selling recording artist Drake.
Drake will perform during the second intermission of the Tim Hortons NHL® All-Star Game.
If they really wanted to make it interesting they should bring Common out in the middle of his set.
