My devoted team and I are really happy to witness the energy the Pee-Wee players deploy on the ice in order to win one of the trophies. I am convinced that, once again, the tournament will be a success, and we cannot wait to welcome everyone here. ‘’
The 44th edition of the International Pee-Wee BSR will also be one of remembrance, as of the team lost two very important people in the last months. The committee has decided to honor their lost ones.
Before the opening game on the 14th of February, a ceremony will be dedicated to Mr Clermont Caouette, Administative VP of the tournament for many years. Furthermore, the A1 trophy, sponsored by Sumacom, will be renamed in his honor.
Also, in tribute to Mrs Lina P. Cloutier, president of the tournament form 1998 to 2001, the A2 trophy, sponsored by Entrepôt du Hockey, will now be name after her.
