March 2 sees the start of the 2011 First Air Avataq Cup Hockey Tournament.
Hockey is serious business around the North with not only the eyes of teams and players fixed upon the standings and the grand prize, but entire communities too. The tournament, this year hosted by the Rankin Inlet Senior Men’s Hockey League, is made possible with the support of major corporate and local sponsors. Ten teams from around the region and as far away as Iqaluit are participating.
