Niagara Falls Blizzard Challenge Tournament

January 16th – 18th, 2021 (Saturday-Monday)

This year’s event will be held at the completely renovated Hyde Park Ice Pavilion (see photo section) in Niagara Falls, NY and usually sell out by mid-November. Over the last few seasons, the rink has been completely overhauled. Both rink has new locker rooms, ices surfaces, scoreboard, benches, and stands, plus the Storeroom bar and restaurant is a great addition to the rinks. With 48 teams in attendance, last year’s event delivered plenty of memories and excitement for all who attended. Five of our Championship games were decided by one goal or less, with the average goal differential for the entire tournament was 2.15
