Apr. 11, 2019
TRURO — The puck drops on the 2019 Hockey Nova Scotia Day of Champions on Friday in Truro.
From April 12-14, fourteen provincial champions will be crowned at levels from Atom B to Midget A at the Hockey Nova Scotia Day of Champions. This year’s event is being held at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre in Truro.
The Day of Champions format was introduced in 2015 and sees the top team from Hockey Nova Scotia’s North Conference take on the best team from the South Conference in a single championship game that will determine a provincial winner.
The action begins at 11 a.m. on Friday when the Cole Harbour Wings take on the TASA Ducks with Midget B provincial bragging rights on the line.
It’s the first of five games on Day 1 of this year’s Day of Champions event.
Five games are scheduled for Saturday, including the Atom AA championship game between the Acadia Axemen and the Truro Bearcats. The puck drops at 4:30 p.m. and will conclude the minor hockey portion of the event.
The female hockey schedule begins on Sunday morning at 9 a.m. when the Fundy-Highland Cyclones take on the Metro East Inferno Red for the Female Atom A provincial title. It is the first of four female hockey finals that will include championships at the Atom AA, Peewee A, and Bantam A levels.
