“What a great way to end the Sagkeeng Hawks hockey season at the 31st MICEC hockey tournament,” said Coach Allister Courchene on the Sagkeeng Minor Hockey Facebook page. “In all my years in attending this tournament this is the best I’ve seen our association perform, on Sunday at 12:00 pm we had representation from every division still competing and vying to contend for championships.”

Courchene went on to congratulate the teams, the coaches, the players and the hockey community at large. “It is truly amazing in how our communities of Sagkeeng, Little Black River, Hollow Water, Pine Falls, Manigotagan and the Beaches all come together as one!
