Hamilton Croatia Hockey Day V

Fifth Annual HCHD presented by Harvey’s

Hamilton Croatia Hockey Day V.

Frank Perin — On Sunday Hamilton Croatia hosted Hockey Day V. The annual ball hockey tournament was held at the Outdoor Ball Hockey Arena at Fifty Point Conservation in Winona.

The Draft, which has become as big a part of the weekend as the actual tournament, took place following the CISL games on Friday night at Lookout Sports Bar, the restaurant located upstairs at Players Paradise (565 Seaman Street in Stoney Creek).

The MVP’s of the day once again re-united and kept the BBQ’s going all day to feed and heat us. Thanks to Saic, Stipa, JoePro and crew for preparing the chili, and thanks again to the Krasic’s for kickin’ in with the Harvey’s!

Going with a 2014 Winter Olympic theme, 63 players in total were drafted to six “national” teams.
