The Can West Mavericks had a very successful weekend at the Empty Net Tournament! They went undefeated for all six games and won the gold medal game 9 to 3 against the Medicine Hat Heat. The Mavericks also won the interview challenge and were presented with a United Cycle gift package.
The highlight of the team’s weekend was playing against Fort McMurray. Seeing the kids with smiles on their faces, playing the sport they love without having to think of the tragedy they experienced, was heartwarming for the players, coaches and parents. The Mavericks went into the Fort McMurray dressing room after the game and presented them with a $100 Boston Pizza gift card to help with a team meal. There were happy tears and a lot of smiles. Makes for a feel good weekend!
