There’s a whole lot of hockey going on this November. In between all the regular season action, there is no shortage of tournaments to keep players busy, including the GTHL’s first big event of the year. Here are some key dates to mark on your November calendar.
Named after the accomplished GTHL grad and current President of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Shanahan International will play host to AAA teams from Minor Atom to Minor Bantam. Last year saw over 125 teams from across Canada and the United States compete in the three day event.
