OPC Hockey Tournament 2018 IBEW CCO and IBEW 353On Friday April 27th and Saturday April 28th 2018, IBEW Local 120 in London hosted the 55th annual Ontario Provincial Council (OPC) hockey tournament. About 25 teams from across Canada and the United States came together to enjoy each others’ company and enjoy the game they love.

Counting players, family members, and other spectators, over 500 people attended the tournament. Teams came from as far away as Detroit, Boston, Buffalo, Toledo, Sudbury, and Ann Arbour. Whenever possible, teams from Winnipeg and New York have attended past tournaments as well.

There are four divisions: A, B, C, and Over 40. “The different divisions are there to keep the games evenly matched so everyone enjoys the game. Every year the top teams move up a division and the bottom two teams move down a division,” says Local 120 Business Manager John Gibson.

This year’s winners were:

  • Division A: Sarnia Local 530
  • Division B: Detroit Local 58
  • Division C: Toronto Local 353
  • Over 40: Hamilton Local 105

Were there any special moments from the game? Gibson doesn’t hesitate to answer.

“For final game in every division, Paul Doughty, father of LA Kings defenseman/alternate captain Drew Doughty, dropped the puck. Paul Doughty wore his son’s Olympic team shirt from the Sochi Olympic games, and also brought a Gold medal to view, off the ice.”

Gibson continues, “I told them this is as close as you’ll ever get to a real Olympic Gold medal for hockey! Everyone really enjoyed the chance to talk to Paul and see the medal.”

It takes a lot of hard work by a lot of people to make this event come together. Thanks to all the volunteers from Local 120 who helped make this such an enjoyable event!
