Canadian singer-songwriter Steven Page to sing national anthem at Winter Classic

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Canadian singer-songwriter Steven Page will sing the national anthem at the NHL Winter Classic in Pittsburgh on New Year's Day.

Jackie Evancho, a 10-year-old local singing sensation, will sing the American anthem before the Penguins take on the Washington Capitals at Heinz Field.

Hinder will perform before the outdoor game and another rock band, The Clarks, will play during the first intermission, the NHL announced Tuesday.

Last October, Page released "Page One,'' his first solo album since splitting from the Barenaked Ladies in February 2009. The Toronto native will tour with the Goo Goo Dolls in the new year.

"I'm honoured to have been asked to sing the Canadian anthem at this year's NHL Winter Classic in the great outdoors in one of my favourite cities—Pittsburgh," Page said in a release.

Page's split from the Ladies capped a difficult period in his life.

In 2008, the singer, his girlfriend and her roommate were charged with drug possession after police found cocaine at a Fayetteville, N.Y., apartment. Last October, all three secured a deal that resulted in dropped charges.
