Minor hockey clubs get back into tourney mode

Port Hardy, Port McNeill associations to host tournaments weekend of Jan. 9-11

Coming out of their holiday break, the North Island’s minor hockey programs will waste no time getting back into the swing of the tournament season.

A pair of tournaments will keep players and fans busy this weekend in Port Hardy and Port McNeill.

Port Hardy Minor Hockey will host its annual peewee tournament Friday through Sunday at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena, with local teams to be joined by a mix of visiting clubs from down-Island.

A fundraiser for the club, the weekend will feature a raffle prize table, 50/50 draws and more, and the concession will be open throughout.

It will be a similar story at Port McNeill’s Chilton Regional Arena, where Port McNeill Minor Hockey hosts its annual atom tournament Friday through Sunday.

Again, plenty of prizes will be on offer at the raffle table, along with a newly expanded concession menu.

Tournament schedules had not been finalized as the Gazette went to press this week. For information on the Port Hardy tourney, email Lynea Borg at porthardytourneys@gmail.com.
