Dave Clarke Memorial – Top 10


The 47th Dave Clarke Memorial Novice Tournament was held at the Flight Exec Centre in Dorchester, Ontario on October 28-30, 2016. The tournament was host to twenty teams from the surrounding area in the Novice division.

This is our first OMHA sanctioned tournament of the season and it did not disappoint. Make sure you take a look at the OMHA website and the Hometown Hockey Magazine to get all the latest hockey info and tips, be part of the discussions, and most importantly view our images! As always, the tournament was well organized and went off without a hitch. We’d like to extend a special thanks to Mike MacIntyre for making sure everything worked out for us. The Dorchester Minor Hockey Association has always been one of our favourite centres in which to photograph hockey.

Out of almost 4500 images we captured, here is the Dave Clarke Memorial Top 10:
