The Rising Stars Tournament was held by the West Lorne Minor Hockey Association in West Lorne, Ontario on January 13-15, 2017. The tournament was host to ten teams from the Atom and Peewee Rep divisions.
The West Elgin Arena staff, the Tournament Committee, and the countless volunteers “…worked hard to create an atmosphere of friendly, fun, and exciting hockey.” The tournament is held as a memorial for Kevin Wrobel and Jordan Shine. “Kevin and Jordan both loved the game, gave it their all, were team players and through their attitude and consistent effort contributed significantly to their team’s successes.” The two players from each division of the tournament were awarded the Heart & Hustle trophy for showcasing these qualities as well.
A special thank you must be given to Karen Booth, who worked tirelessly organizing the tournament’s schedule and events and making sure everybody had what they needed and had fun! It’s volunteers like Karen that give kids a chance to participate in hockey. Thank you Karen!
