CHICAGO — Over 10,000 players from 526 teams spanning nine different age groups — 19 divisions from four countries including the United States, Canada, Slovakia and the Czech Republic — played well over 1,200 games at 36 different rinks this past weekend at the 2018 CCM World Hockey Invite presented by 200×85 hockey.

Teams from 29 states — Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin as well as the District of Columbia hit the ice with teams from Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario over the course of a three-day whirlwind of action from Nov. 2-4. And when the ice chips settled, 19 new champions were crowned at every level spanning 2004-’09, U-15, U-16 and U-18.

“The 2018 CCM World Hockey Invite was a huge success this past weekend from the second the Opening Night Reception began on Thursday until the final buzzers of the championship games on Sunday,” Justin Lewandowski, Tournament Director and 200×85 VP of Hockey Operations, said.

“We at 200×85 would like to thank all of the teams, participants and parents for traveling to the Chicagoland area to compete in the biggest youth hockey tournament in the world!” Lewandowski added. “With the help of our many sponsors and the support of our many arena on-ice and off-ice staff, we were able to successfully coordinate 1,221 games in just 58 hours at 36 different ice arenas!”


“We look forward to hosting the 2019 CCM World Hockey Invite in Chicago (Nov. 1-3, 2019) and we hope to see every one back next year!” Lewandowski said.
