Invitational Faculty and Staff Hockey Tournament
The University of Guelph hosts the 36th-Annual Invitational Faculty and Staff Hockey Tournament.
The two-day event includes teams from the universities of Waterloo, Western, Laurier, McMaster and Nipissing as well as U of G’s Grey Gryphons. The Guelph team has skated together for more than 20 years.
U of G has hosted the tournament since 1997.
The Grey Gryphons won the event in 2012, taking possession of the Brian Kennedy Memorial Cup Trophy, named for the late U of G professor, who was a long-time participant in the event.
“The 36-year tradition has produced many lifelong friendships,” said event organizer Prof. Rich Moccia, Guelph's associate vice-president research (strategic partnerships).
