Ice Hockey Classic – About Us

Our Story

Combining the passion of hockey and helping players at all levels of sport

Over 10 years ago, Kerry Goulet helped to develop the concept of showcasing professional ice hockey down under, with teams made up of professional hockey players from the AHL, NHL, ECHL, European Leagues and NCAA. These players don’t play together during their regular season, but donate their time to support Kerry’s passionate endeavour of raising awareness for the ongoing impact of concussions on people and their families around the world. Our players come from various skill levels and leagues in the Northern Hemisphere.

With the support of this tour, we have been able to develop the Safe4Sports Prevention Program globally in conjunction with StopConcussions and Shoot for a Cure.
