  • There is an opening ceremony on Saturday and the Saturday night they have a dance party for all teams to attend (believe it will be Hawaiian themed this year)
  • They are planning on having a "Future Stars" game where some of the younger guys will get a chance to shine and show off their skills with their teammates and families watching. A great chance for some of the littler guys who might struggle a little in the full-ice tournament games.
    • Future Stars Game is Saturday at 1PM
  • Rochester Americans game on Friday night - If you are interested in going, please contact Tim Hitzel ( as he is putting that excursion together.

We are very much looking forward to the tournament and have heard good things about this one in particular (it's their 10th or 11th year of the friendship Tournament). It is a weekend that is about team, family, fun and sportsmanship. We hope that everyone is able to take the trip up there.
