Winter Classic is a success in Hemmingford

The recent drop in temperatures after a relatively mild February played into the hockey-gloved hands of organizers behind the inaugural Winter Classic hockey tournament in Hemmingford, which took place on February 25-26. Four teams entered the tournament despite frigid temperatures, driving wind, and snow over the two days. The puck drop for the final game took place before crowds of all ages that gathered for a winter community day and some pretty good hockey. Organizers say that despite some challenges maintaining the ice leading up to the tournament, there will definitely be a second edition next winter, and they are hoping that teams from the surrounding area will sign up. All of the proceeds from the tournament will go to the newly formed Hemmingford Sports Committee to support sports and activities for kids throughout the year.
