Abbotsford Minor's Peewee Icebreaker Tournament

Some of the Lower Mainland’s top Peewee talent will be face off against competition from the Interior and as far away as Whitehorse when 32 teams descend on the Fraser Valley for Thanksgiving weekend and the Abbotsford Minor Hockey Association’s annual IceBreaker tournament.

The event, which has become one of B.C.’s most popular at the Peewee level, is now in its 14th year.

A total of 32 Tier 1, 2 and 3 teams will compete at the event, including four squads representing the host Abbotsford Hawks.

In the A1 division, the Hawks will compete with teams from Seafair, Kelowna, Coquitlam and the Victoria Racquet Club. On the other side of bracket are Richmond, Cloverdale, Ridge Meadows, Hollyburn and Prince George.

“We have a very confident bunch,” says tournament organizer Paulo DeGianni of Abbotsford’s A1 entry. “The team looks very good and they’re looking forward to some very competitive games.”

DeGianni expects stiff competition from the likes of local rivals Seafair and Richmond, and has heard that the Prince George and Kelowna squads look particularly strong this year.

Meanwhile, the 12-team A2 division features squads from Aldergrove, Comox, Chilliwack, Kamloops, Langley and the North Shore Winter Club in one pool while the Hawks are joined by Cloverdale, Cowichan, Nanaimo, Ridge Meadows and West Kelowna in the other.

And at the A3 level, a pair of host teams are competing in a group that includes the Hawks’ A3 squad, Salmon Arm, Port Coquitlam, Seattle and the Sunshine Coast in Pool A and the A4 Hawks along with Kamloops, the North Shore Winter Club, Ridge Meadows and Whitehorse in Pool B.
