Since inception in 2003, the Molson University Old Star Hockey Challenge has become a 'must do' on the hockey calendar for AUS/AUAA alumni hockey players throughout the region and beyond. The camaraderie, fellowship and competitive spirit has produced many exciting and fun-filled moments over the past 9 years.
With an eye towards securing the Event's future and in an effort to address some of the roster compliance challenges that have evolved over the years, we are today making a major announcement about the future of the Old Stars tourney.

-  Effective October 2012, the Old Star tourney will be integrated directly into the existing Molson Men's Rec Hockey Tournament.
-  NEW DATE for the NEW TOURNAMENT will be Thanksgiving Weekend, Friday October 5 and Saturday October 6.
-  Halifax Forum and Civic Arena will be the host site
-  Off-ice hospitality will feature an impressive line-up all through the weekend, including - Molson Canadian Hockey House; Molson Ambassadors; complimentary food; Entertainment; prizes; ice cold Molson Canadian and much more...!
-  The NEW tournament, presented by Molson Coors,  will be known as - MOLSON CANADIAN HOCKEY CLASSIC
-  The NEW tournament will be organized into three (3) different groupings, with Champions being declared in each:
-  Molson Canadian "Alumni" Division (former Old Star tournament)
-  Molson Canadian "Classic"  Division (former Rec tournament)
-  Women's Division

The Alumni Division will continue to invite all 10 current and past AUAA/AUS team to participate.
Some University teams may choose to move from the Alumni Division to the Classic Division due to roster compliance issues - that decision is entirely open to the Alumni team.
