FRASER, MI — Over 450 players from 29 teams in The United States and Canada finished out the 2018 calendar year in fine fashion at OneHockey’s MAHA World Holiday Invite Dec. 28-30 at Fraser Hockeyland this past weekend.
The Carolina Eagles captured Mite and Squirt team titles, while the Essex Ravens from Ontario and the Utica Jr. Comets won PeeWee AA and Pee Wee Elite titles, respectively. The Flint Jr. Firebirds prevailed in the Bantam AA Division, while the Macomb Mavericks hoisted the OneHockey Cup in the U-16 competition.
All told, 74 games were played over the course of the three-day festival which featured teams from Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
“It was great to finally meet all these new teams,” OneHockey CEO Sebastien Fortier said. “They will not soon forget their experience at OneHockey.
“The event was a total success and we will be back in Fraser twice next year (Nov 8-20 and Dec 28-30),” Fortier said. “The arena staff was the best we’ve ever seen! Thank you for your help in making this event a huge success.”
