Jamaica's U20 men's hockey team visits Dartmouth this weekend

The Jamaican Olympic Ice Hockey Federation's U20 men's team is coming to Nova Scotia.


This weekend, the Jamaican Olympic Ice Hockey Federation's U20 men's team will be travelling to Dartmouth for a pair of exhibition games. The games are being presented by the Black Ice Hockey and Sports Hall of Fame Society.

The Jamaican team is led by head coach Graeme Townshend, the first Jamaican-born NHLer and a former member of the Boston Bruins, New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators. The team is made up of players of Jamaican ancestry, some of whom play in the Ontario Hockey League and the Ontario Junior Hockey League.

Southon Thammachack, a defenceman with Halifax McDonald's (Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League), will skate with the Jamaican team while they are in Nova Scotia.

The first game of the Jamaican tour will take place on Saturday, May 13 at 3:30 p.m. when the Jamaican squad takes on a team of local celebrities at the Dartmouth Sportsplex.


On Sunday, May 14 at 3:30 p.m. at the Dartmouth Sportsplex, the Jamaican group will face off against a team consisting of Junior and Midget-aged players from across Nova Scotia in an exhibition match-up.


Admission is just $5 at the door (or a donation!). Proceeds from the Celebrating Diversity Through Sport event will go toward assisting local non-profits and other charities.

Sunday's game will be broadcast live by Eastlink.


Join us at the Dartmouth Sportsplex this weekend as we join the Black Ice Hockey and Sports Hall of Fame in celebrating diversity through sport!
