It may be June, but there are no days off in The State of Hockey.
Over 400 players from 23 teams were on hand in Minneapolis, Minnesota this past weekend for the “Summer Slam” and when the ice settled five new champions were crowned by OneHockey.
Teams from Arizona, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Nebraska joined a team from Manitoba in yet another highly successful event from OneHockey June 1-3 at Schwan Super Rink in Blaine, MN.
Already a world-wide phenomenon, OneHockey continues to provide outstanding hockey memories that will last a lifetime during its multiple weekend-long youth tournaments and this past weekend was no exception as five new champions were awarded the OneHockey Cup.

ONEHOCKEY WORLD HOLIDAY INVITE
This winter, OneHockey will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest ever youth hockey tournament.
Currently, the Minor Hockey Tournament held in Calgary in 2007 holds the record with 664 teams comprised of 10,992 players competing in 957 games on 42 sheets of ice.
OneHockey’s 2018 Holiday Invite, set for December 27-30 in Michigan, however, is well within reach of that mark with 567 teams committed as of March.
