There will be celebrity guests, tons of giveaways and prizes for everyone, live music, games by donation for the Humboldt Broncos, and plenty more ways to get connected with your hockey community in Calgary.

When you register we'll ask for the age and skill level of all players so we can create divisional pools of teams based on their skill level to keep the competition fair.
