DETROIT — Over 100 girls ice hockey teams — 1,900 players spanning U-12, U-14, U-16 and U-19 Tier I and Tier II age groups — played 230 games at six different rinks over the course of a three-day whirlwind of action in Motor City this past weekend at the 2018 CCM World Girls Hockey Invite presented by 200×85 hockey.

Teams from United States and Canada representing Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Wisconsin and Ontario hit the ice from Nov. 9-11, and when the ice chips settled, eight new champions were crowned.

“The 2018 CCM World Hockey Invite Detroit Girls Tournament was a huge success this past weekend. The first snowfall of the year added even more tournament atmosphere where some players were able to see snow for the first time!” Julie Pardoski, 200×85 Chairperson for Girls Ice Hockey Events, said.

“We had over 100 teams participating from as far as Alaska to Florida in the Tier 1 and Tier 2 age classifications. We had exciting overtimes and shootouts in the semifinal games which shows the competitive level of this event,” Pardoski said.
