After a full day of excitement and action, this edition of the Canada Day Cup is shaping up to be the best one yet! The puck dropped on the fourth edition of this tournament at 11:30am when the 2005 Lac St-Louis Lions simultaneously took to the ice against the Max Puissance Woods team as the 2005 Rinkeye team faced off against the Max Puissance Elite team. The action continued all the way to a quartet of 8 o’clock Bantam games whom just wrapped up and showed promise of a tight race for the division crown.

The Bell Sensplex was thrilled to have a special guest on hand earlier today for the tournament’s ceremonial faceoff, as Ottawa’s favorite “party animal” Spartacat was here to join the 4th anniversary celebrations and drop the puck in today’s matchup between the 2003 SHD Selects and the James Bay All-Stars. Thanks for the visit, Sparty!

Special mentions go out to some outstanding players for their incredible work today: Anthony Romani of the 2005 Pro Hockey Ontario team is our current tournament leading scorer with nine points in two games, and Olivier Brideau (2005 Max Puissance Elite), Xavier Roy (2005 Royals Elite), Mario Zganger (2005 Pro Hockey Ontario), Rayen Singh (2005 Phantoms), Jeremy Baillargeon (2003 Cumberland Jr Bandits), Owen Flaig (2003 SHD Ottawa Brooks), Kai Edmonds (2000 Ottawa Dusters), Chris Kuglietta (1999 SHD Black) & Marlene Boissoneault (U17 UNB V-Red Prospects) each posted a shutout today! Well done!

Please be sure to double check your Sunday schedules, as unforeseen circumstances have forced us to make a few modifications, and while all impacted teams have been called, best to air on the safe side of things. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you; we truly worked as to minimize any impact it may have, it was truly done in the best interest of the tournament.
