The Jan. 14-16 event featured 122 recreational hockey teams from Western Canada and the United States.
“The Pacific Cup tournament annually attracts the most teams that attend our tournaments held across Canada,” said CARHA’s Scott Wilson in a news release. The teams were divided into 20 divisions.
