Canadian superstar Michael Buble has pulled out of his appearance at the Richmond Olympic Oval this weekend.
Buble was due to appear at the oval as part of the Richmond Celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada event on Saturday.
He was scheduled to participate in a celebrity ball hockey game.
However, due to other commitments, he has had to withdraw.
“Unfortunately, I am unable to attend Hockey Day in Canada next Saturday…,” he said.
“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 ball hockey competitively brings back fond memories. I wish all the players luck and I hope the event is a great success for everyone."
