Mac's Tournament Announces 2008 Participants

Calgary, Alberta, (December 10, 2008) -The Mac's Tournament Committee kicks off another Tournament with the announcement of the participants for the 31st Anniversary edition of the Mac's Tournament.


When this tournament began in 1978, people wanted to bring the best competition to the city and play a leadership role in advancing midget hockey. In light of the global economic conditions that have recently unfolded, we have had four international teams withdraw applications. We continue to strive to bring the best talent to Calgary to Experience the Mac's Experience and we feel that this year's group of teams will provide excellent competition as well as entertainment for the many fans of midget hockey.  The Mac's Tournament is known worldwide as the best hockey tournament for midget-aged hockey players and this year's Tournament will be no exception.


The 31st annual Mac's Tournament will be held in Calgary from December 26, 2008 to January 1, 2009 Round Robin games will take place at the Max Bell Centre, Father David Bauer and Centennial Arenas and the Championship Finals will take place at the Pengrowth Saddledome.   The Tournament will feature 25 of the top male midget teams from across Canada placed in 5 Divisions. There will be 15 female which have been placed in 3 Divisions.   Three male and one female wildcard teams will join the winner of each pool in the playoffs.



Mac's Convenience Stores are proud to be the major sponsor of this event. We are grateful for the continued support of Mac's, which allows Calgary to continue to host the top midget hockey tournament in the world.   We encourage our fans to visit their local Mac's Convenience Store, as tickets will be available there starting on December 12th.

Rempel commented, “Caitlin is one of the best young defenders in this province. She has tremendous physical skills and her upside is unlimited. At only 16 years old, she is already a two-time member of Team Manitoba and also wears the "C" at Balmoral Hall, a testament to her leadership abilities, her maturity and her ability to play the game. The coaching staff is very pleased that Caitlin has decided to pursue her academic and athletic career at the University of Manitoba and we are excited to have her as part of our program for the next five years.”

Rempel enthused, “"Tara is one of the best young goalies in the province and in Canada. Her work ethic, desire to improve and character are all things that will make her transition to University hockey and our Bison program a smooth one. Tara will do whatever it takes to help her teammates and also do the all of the things she needs to in order to achieve her personal goals. Tara is also an outstanding student who has lofty academic goals and wants to prepare herself for her future at Manitoba. Our coaching staff is very excited at having Tara as part of our program for the next five years and having the opportunity to help her achieve her athletic and academic goals.”

Rempel said, “"Kristin has improved tremendously over the last couple of years and is going to have an immediate impact in the Bison lineup next season with her physical style of play and high-energy tempo. Kristin is a team-oriented player with great character and leadership abilities that has gained a lot of valuable experience at Balmoral Hall and with Team Manitoba playing against other high level players from high level programs.

Wildcats Win Bronze at Notre Dame Hounds Showcase Tournament

The Westman Wildcats Regional Female Midget Team claimed bronze at the 16 team Notre Dame Hounds Annual Showcase Tournament over the weekend.

The Wildcats first action was on Thursday afternoon against Melville AAA Prairie Fire. The Cats came out strong and hard and were up 7-1 after one period. The Westman squad finished up the game 10-1 with Britt Phillips, JD Durnin and Brigette Lacquette each scoring a pair.

The second game in their pool brought the Wildcats up against the AAA Red Deer Chiefs. The Cats took this game 5-1 with Meg Bailey leading the way with a pair of goals.

The Westman squad's second action Friday had them against the AAA Alberta North Division leading Edmonton Thunder. The Cats really found their scoring touch for this game, taking the game 11-2. Phillips led the scoring netting the hat trick.

The Cats won their pool with a 3-0 record and were off to the semis against the Saskatchewan AAA league leading Swift Current Wildcats. This was by far the most exciting game of the entire tournament with the two teams locked at two after regulation. A ten minute sudden death solved nothing and the two teams were off to the shoot-out. The teams were still tied after one round of shooting. The Swift Current team was able to defeat the Manitoba namesakes in the second round sending Westman to the Bronze game.

Sunday had the Westman club taking on the AAA Prince Albert Bears in the third place game. The Cats outplayed their opponents in all three frames and secured the win 4-1. Brigette Lacquette notched two in the win.

The Wildcats next action is Sunday December 14th in Hartney with the Winnipeg Titans in town for a two o'clock start.
