World U17 Hockey Challenge Back in B.C.

By Kirk Budden on February 25, 2017
 

The 2017 World U17 Hockey Challenge is heading back to Dawson Creek and Fort St. John. The tournament will see the best young players from all over the world, for a majority of them playing on an international stage for the first time. Team Canada will supply three teams for the tournament made up of top talent born in 2001 or later.

This is the second time that Dawson Creek and Fort St. John will be co-hosting the event. The two also hosted just two years ago, in 2015, and the event was such a resounding success the region and the province of B.C. were keen to host again. The 2015 event garnered $120,000 in proceeds with $50,000 from 50/50 sales being donated to minor hockey associations. A study also showed that the entire province of B.C. and the region generated close to $6M in economic activity. 

The tournament will be hosted out of the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek and the North Peace Arena in Fort St. John from Nov. 5 to 11, 2017.
