WATCH: 2013 Special Hockey Benefit Game

The Ice Hounds and Ice Pirates are two local hockey teams comprised of children and adults that have developmental or physical challenges that prevent them from participating in traditional hockey programs. The goal of both teams is to provide individuals with an opportunity to experience Canada’s favourite game in a setting where there are no age groups and no tryouts. Everyone has a role: players don't need to know how to skate, hold a stick or handle a puck, though many of them do these things very well. All that is required is a heart and desire to do what many others take for granted; being part of a team, learning about teamwork and most of all having fun playing hockey!
