Minor Midget - Tyler Hanson Memorial Ball Hockey Tournament
Submitted By Laura Henry on Tuesday, October 10, 2017

On September 30th the Minor Midget AAA team, along with their parents, suited up for the second annual Tyler Hanson Memorial Hockey Tournament. This event is held in memory of a local hockey player who passed away in a tragic accident two years ago; Tyler's legacy continues as funds are raised in his name for Sick Kids Hospital and Big Brother and Sisters. Tyler's older brother, Travis Hanson, played with the Whitby Bantam AAA team last season and is now an opponent on the ice as he plays for Central Ontario Wolves. 

The ball hockey game was Parents vs Players, Tyler's mom joined the parents as a guest player, and once again stood on her head in net!!

Thank you to the Hanson family, volunteers, sponsors, and teams that made this event a success, looking forward to participating again next year.
