Welcome to the 36th edition of the MacPherson Hockey Tournament, offering three days of fast-paced and competitive games hosted by SAC’s Varsity team from January 25 to 27.
We appreciate the participation of teams that travel so far to play at SAC. This year all guest teams are from outside Ontario. Accepting the invitation this year are competitors from Alberta and British Columbia as well as teams from New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Minnesota in the United States.
We are thrilled to welcome back for a second year Jungadler Mannheim, a team from Germany. Our Varsity Hockey Saints travelled to Mannheim, Germany in 2016 and 2017 to compete in the DEL Junior Cup, winning the tournament in their first appearance. Jungadler Mannheim has the distinction of being the first non-North American team to be included in the tournament.
Fans can expect to witness some of the most talented players from around the world in high school hockey at the MacPherson Tournament. Many of these young athletes will go on to play at the university, junior, or professional levels. It’s also a weekend for players to go up against top-notch opponents in an arena that values sportsman-like conduct and respect for others.
Good luck to all teams and most importantly — have fun!
