Family Day this past Monday turned out to be a wonderful occasion for those who played in, and watched, the First Annual B’nai Brith Canada ice hockey tournament at the Canlan Ice Sport facility in North York, Ont. The tourney was well organized and served as a template to relaunch the B’nai Brith Ice Hockey League, as soon as next season.
Nine under-age-35 (composed of two divisions) and four over-age-35 teams competed in a series of three round-robin games, with the best-record teams advancing to the title games. ‘Wise Guys’ and ‘Adam’ emerged as respective U-35 and 35-O champions and each team received a $300 gift card for use at WEGZ Stadium Bar in Vaughan. Ont. Raffle prizes consisted of Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys, toques, fleeced jackets, gloves and a toaster oven.
