Head Coach Marc Berry told BuzzFeed Canada the arena also played Ukrainian music throughout the night between periods and during stoppages in play.

"The actual sausage used was rolled-up garden hose [that was] wrapped by a local meat processor," Berry said. "It's against Ukrainian custom to throw food."

The night was a big success, and Berry said the Kings hope to make Ukrainian Night an annual thing.
