Hockey Winnipeg’s golf tournament began in 2004 with then Executive Director, Dianne Woods, in an effort to fundraise and assist families who otherwise could not afford to enroll their children in hockey. With the Dianne’s passing in 2011, Hockey Winnipeg has rededicated the tournament in her name, and honors her goal of seeing every child play the game. All surplus proceeds from the tournament go directly to Hockey Winnipeg’s Dianne Woods Memorial Player Assistance Fund, which assists families in need to cover the costs associated with joining a hockey team.
The success of this event relies heavily on the participation and generosity from our community. We are asking for your support to help us continue to create opportunities to put kids on the ice.
This year the Tournament will be held at Elmhurst Golf & Country Club on June 4th.
Due to a high number of tied games which resulted in games having to be replayed the playoffs are in a time crunch. A decision has been made to change the Overtime Rules for the Hockey Winnipeg Playoffs that will take effect immediately.
Moving forward, all games will be played out until there is a winner. There will be no rescheduling of games. The format of Overtime will follow the rule book – 4 on 4 with the period length being the same as the first period.
Hockey Winnipeg is also waiving the rules against playing on 3 and 4 consecutive days. This will be the reality for some series to be able to be completed. It is important to note that Playoff Convenors have been asked to look at the schedule and do what they can to lighten the load on teams in the finals by spreading out games where possible.
The 2017-18 playoff draws are now posted under the playoff tab at the top of the website, with the dates and times of the games. Teams will be added once the regular season schedule is finished and the standings are finalized.
The 39th Annual Ron Stamm All-Star Game will take place this Saturday, January 28th at 3:00 PM at the BellMTS Iceplex. This game will feature Midget A1 players from across all of our teams. Check out the rosters below. The event will finish with a dinner featuring guest speakers J.P. Vigier and Mike Ford at the restaurant upstairs.
