For those who missed it, the Ice Hockey Classic that was held at the IHC Showcase at Paramount Ice in Thornhill on Saturday, August 21, 2022, here’s a recap. It was a great night. 

People from all corners of the globe tuned in as a group of pro, college, and junior level players faced off representing Canada and the USA. The Americans were able to hold off a seven-goal comeback against Canada winning 8-7 in Overtime. The USA got off to a strong start, dominating play for most of the first period. Just before the halfway point of the first, Drake Caggiula (Buffalo Sabres) would find Grayden Gottschalk (Laurier Univ.) on a backdoor pass to open the scoring for the game…

ICE HOCKEY CLASSIC

Canada vs USA Ice Hockey Game 

Over 10 years ago, Kerry Goulet had a dream to showcase Canada’s game to the world, Ice Hockey. Since then, the Ice Hockey Classic has done 11 tours showcasing hockey games between two of Hockey’s biggest rivals, Canada and the USA. 

The Ice Hockey Classic is a worldwide hockey extravaganza that features hockey players – current or retired professional players from various leagues including the NHL, AHL, ECHL, European Leagues, and the NCAA.

These carefully picked players are not only skilled Hockey players but are also ambassadors of the game. The players come together to highlight the fastest sport on ice while donating their time to support Goulet’s passionate endeavour to raise awareness for mental health and concussions.

The Ice Hockey Classic is planned for June/July 2022 in New Zealand and Australia. The cities being considered: Queenstown, Wellington, Auckland, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.

 To kick off this worldwide event – August 21st, 2021, the Ice Hockey Classic will be having its first game at Paramount Ice in Richmond Hill, Ontario that will be live-streamed across the world!

Designed by Indigenous Artist, Jenaya Riley-Firebrace, a proud Yorta Yorta woman. The indigenous art tells a story and these jerseys represent the Kaurna People of Adelaide, Australia. 

The circles represent the meeting places of the tribes and communities that each player comes from. The tracks (lines) that connect the circles represents the journey and paths that each player has taken from their tribes/communities to meet each other and come together to form the first Indigenous Ice Hockey Team in Australia, the Kaurna Boomerangs. Finally the Boomerangs represent each player on the Kaurna Boomerangs.

WE ARE BACK IN 2022

Thank you to the fans who have followed us and have always inspired us to achieve more. 

The Ice Hockey Classic tour is proud to work with the StopConcussions Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that has four main pillars: Prevention, Education, Management, and Research.

StopConcussions was designed to educate players, administrators, physicians, coaches, and officials on the cause, effects, and consequences of concussions and neurotrauma injuries, not only in hockey but all sports.

Brain and spinal cord injury result in life-changing consequences, and to date, no “standard of practice” has been implemented into the areas that have a higher frequency of serious injuries such as hockey, football, rugby, and soccer.

“If you were to ask me if 20,000 fans would fill a rink in Sydney, Australia, I would have never believed it. I did not realize how big hockey was Down Under. So when I got invited to get on board to help promote our game and support StopConcussions, I jumped at it. The number of NHL jerseys I saw in the crowd was amazing plus having Nathan Walker participate in the tour was fantastic. Great event. It was good to see so many kids playing our sport here!”
