China Harbin (2020) International Junior Ice Hockey Invitation Tournament

Year 2020 for U12 Selects started with the best possible way. International tournament with teams from Russia, Finland, Japan, Korea and China in Harbin.

Nice wintery weather, snow on the ground, great ice rink facilities and good competition welcomed us in Harbin.

We started the tournament against strong Russian team followed up Chinese select team having players all around China, these two games we learned how to play as 5 player unit and what aspects of the game we need to improve. Next up was Harbin, Japan and Finland. Three wins with very solid team and goaltending effort! Last game for third place we played against Korean team, their fast and straight forward hockey was too much for us this time and we finished tied in points for 3rd place.  Both Japan and Korea with better goal difference and Japan took the bronze medals this time leaving us in 5th place.

Great experience for us again to play against good players and teams in great ice rink and facilities. Meeting international friends and making new friendships all around the world! Outside hockey highlight Harbin Snow and Ice festival event got us all have fun and play with the snow and ice for hours

We are definitely looking forward for 2021 Harbin tournament.
