The first ever Wayne Zahayko Memorial pre-novice hockey tournament will be taking place tomorrow, February 24th, at the Thompson Regional Community Centre.

The action will get underway at 9:30am, with the Wabowden Stingers playing the Thompson Jets and the Snow Lake Spartans playing the Thompson Blackhawks. The opening ceremonies will follow at 11:50am.
