December saw the second edition of the Hot Pot Draft Tournament take place during the Christmas break, featuring Youth Divisions in the U7, U9, U11 and U13 categories.
An exciting 4 day tournament saw closely contested games, a great atmosphere created by the locals and traveling contingent, as well as plenty of firsts for the young stars: first goals, first assists, and first shutouts of their young careers. Excited parents were all around as the holiday break gave many an opportunity to take some time off to watch their young players in action.
Games at the new DB Rink saw full ice games for the U9 division and older, while the U7 division played 2 cross ice games simultaneously side by side for the first time.
The tournament also featured a skills competition for the U9, U11 and U13 divisions, where the kids got to showcase their skills as well as watch their coaches in action as they performed the demos for the 4 events: fastest skater, puck control relay, rapid fire and breakaway competition.
We would like to sincerely thank all those that participated and all the attendees, staff and sponsors for making the tournament a huge success. We look forward to hosting more Hot Pot tournaments in the future.
