Sad news to announce to the Toronto hockey community.
Barry Young, just 52 years young, a long-time friend and goalie
passed away on Sunday Nov 17th from flu complications and on-going heart issues.
Never at a loss for words or saves – Barry would always be available
when hockey teams or pickup games needed a goalie.
The refs always appreciated him preventing icings in those late night league games.
..he had a shot better than most players!
A goalie since he was 12 years old, he leaves behind 5 sons, his wife..
.. and more hockey friends than even I can imagine.
Condolences to his family and friends, he will be missed by countless hockey players, organizers and the hockey community who appreciated his dedication and expertise for the sport he loved.

A Go-Fund-Me page has been started for his wife and young sons

May long weekend 2020 marks
the 27th Annual Asian Hockey Championship and Cultural Event

What’s New this year?
1.       Men’s Beginner Division - more interest from teams –
ie. Manitoba, Ottawa and more new teams
2.       There’s been a lot of interest in forming an International Division – men/women/children
3.       More interest from parents getting their children involved –
        we could form a competitive children’s division vs recreational divisionor
form an older vs younger children’s division
4.       More cultural activities this year – more music, more dance,
more martial arts, more cultural food!!!
       – you wouldn’t believe it, but the cultural part of our event is
quickly outpacing the hockey portion of the event!!
5.       More free skates, more hockey lessons, more partners more for friends,
family and community to doeven if you aren’t into hockey yet!!

Players should always email to confirm a spot.so there shouldn't be any confusion.
Note: There are also 2-3 pickup games that do not allow male skaters as well :-)
