Hockey is back in more ways than one! The NHL lockout has finally come to an end, and this week is the 38th Annual Laurentian University SPAD Hockey Tournament. As always, the event features a Mixed and Competitive Conference, this year with 15 teams in the Mixed and 10 teams in Competitive competing for the title of tournament champs and cash and other prizes. The tournament will take place from Wednesday January 23rd until Friday January 25th at Cambrian and Carmichael Arenas in Sudbury, and for the very first time, the tournament will be featuring a Skills Competition presented by the President’s Office on the final day. The Skills Competition will display fastest skater, shooting accuracy, and puck handling challenges, as well as an elimination shootout. Other highlights include the Laurentian University Professor vs. Staff Game on Friday at 1:00pm at Cambrian Arena, and a wrap-up Official After-Party on Friday night at the Ten Nightclub.
