Hockey Hold'em

[template_images/img_hh_logo.jpg]What is Hockey Hold'em? Hockey Hold'em was created by Brent Belanger in 2015 after several years of conceptualization. The idea of Hockey Hold'em is players will sign-up as individuals, then are divided/drafted between different teams all weekend (3 games) based on their skill level. Each team will be made as equal as possible using the AEA Salary Cap System. The tournament is open to ALL genders and skill levels. Once a player has committed to the event they will receive their base 'chip' amount. Players than gamble these chips on the games they play. They're always betting on their team to WIN. The top 26 skaters and two goalies with the most chips at end of their 3 games will be invited to play in the championship game on Sunday.

In it's inaugural weekend, the tournament went extremely well and participants had a lot fun. It's basically a big drop in hockey weekend, with the ultimate spoils going to the winners . . . a chance to get your name on the Kegger Cup, travel with it, and enjoy it over your lifetime.
