BUFFALO, NY - Organizers are shooting for a bigger and better Pond Hockey Tournament next year with the addition of more teams and night play to the 5th annual event at downtown's Erie Basin Marina.
Hockey under the lights will allow organizers to take advantage of colder temperatures and allow more teams to hit the ice.
This time around, 144 teams will battle it out with each team now allowed to have seven players instead of six.
The Labatt Blue Buffalo Pond Hockey Tournament is set for Friday, February 10th through Sunday, February 12th.
Team registration opens on Sunday, November 27th at noon to give more teams time to plan. Registration is first come, first served. Last year's event sold out in just a couple of hours. The cost to register remains the same as last year, $250 per team.
