By Rosalind Russell – The Little Native Hockey League has a record number of teams this year.
It has become a tradition for Indigenous teams across Ontario to gather in Mississauga for the March break to take part in the week-long tournament.
Organizers say there is a record-break 246 teams registered for the 50th Anniversary tournament.
Tykes to 18-year-olds take part in the popular event, which will be spread out over five days at dozens of rinks throughout the city.
This year’s event will also feature vendors, a gala, several keynote speakers including Ted Nolan, and ceremonies.
Manitoulin Island’s own Crystal Shawada is also the headliner for the celebration.
