SYRACUSE — Over 300 players from 23 teams spanning Squirt, PeeWee, Bantam and U-16 divisions hit the ice as four new champions were crowned in yet another highly successful youth hockey tournament from OneHockey.
Teams from Florida, New York, Pennsylvania and the Canadian Province of Quebec packed it all in from Nov. 16-18 at Lysander Ice Arena in suburban Baldwinsville, N.Y. and when the ice settled the cup was hoisted high for everyone to see as the Gloucester Rangers (Squirt), Winterhaven Warriors (PeeWee), Batavia Ramparts (Bantam) and Long Island Rebels (U-16) emerged victorious.
“The tournament grew 40% from last year and we feel we have impressed yet again,” OneHockey CEO Sebastien Fortier said. “The teams who attended all left with a smile on their faces, will be back and share their great experience with others, which is why we are growing so fast.”
Fortier expects the OneHockey event in Central New York State to only grow even larger over time.
“We expect 50 teams at next year’s tournament,” Fortier said. “Also, we are about to announce additional tournaments which will be held with the Syracuse Nationals AAA program.”
