Columbus Day Hockey Tournament

Columbus Day Hockey Tournament: Every year, this three-day event sells out earlier than ever at the completely renovated Hyde Park Ice Pavilion in Niagara Falls, NY.

You may not recognize the rink if you haven’t been there recently. Both rinks have new locker rooms, ice surfaces, scoreboards, benches, and stands, plus the Stoneroom bar and restaurant is open.

A sold out field of 50 teams made last year’s event a memorable experience for all who attended. Midgets of all ages tend to attend this tournament as the midget season is in full swing.

We had 1/2 ice mites last year for the first time, and it worked out really well. We will have all divisions from Mite to Migets, so give Mike a call for more details. 716-316-1526
