April 2019 will mark the 19th Annual Open Ice 3on3 Spring Tournament.
The Open Ice tournament holds many fond memories for thousands of players and is a long standing tradition for many. This event marks the end of the hockey season and brings friends together for a final weekend of fun with a different style of play. Open Ice 3on3 gives players both young and old an opportunity to play the game they love while feeling the satisfaction that comes with contributing to a worthy cause.
Players, family members, spectators and the community of Sault Ste. Marie will enjoy a different style of hockey with each team carrying only 7-10 players, including a goalie. Teams ice 3 players and a goalie in a full-ice format that does not allow body contact, stoppages in play or the use of the penalty box. After a goal the scoring team only needs to clear the zone before resuming play and all penalties result in a penalty shot to be taken at the end of the game. Players very soon feel the freedom of 3-on-3 hockey as they enjoy the "open ice" during the two 12-minute periods.
We are proud to announce the proceeds from the 2019 Open Ice 3on3 tournament are in support of:
