Sep. 14, 2011


Tournament Organizers and Team Coordinators are rapidly putting the final touches to weekend arrangements and rosters as the 9th annual Molson University Old Star Hockey Challenge is now about to descend upon the historic Halifax Forum on Friday Sept 23 and Saturday Sept 24..

Some key highlights for 2011
1. ALL games are at Halifax Forum this year (see details under the "Schedule" tab to the left)
2. Back by popular demand - Molson Players Lounge at Maritime Hall immediately adjacent to the arena. This year watch for more hospitality and activity in the MPL .
3. After Party destinations
       Friday night - Bubba Rays
       Saturday night - Durty Nelly's

DAL is back strong and looking to defend its  championship - 3rd in tournament history, most of any team!.

Look for the QuickStickz Challenge, a fun stickhandling skill tournement that will be hosted inside the  Molson Players Lounge. Staged by former pro and SMU bench coach Dean Dachyshyn, winners will be declared Saturday afternoon with lots of prizes to go around including a Quick Sticks training kit and program.
Established in 2003, the Molson University Old Star Hockey Challenge is the largest and most successful alumni hockey tournament in Canada.

Canadian hockey fans who know their University hockey agree....the AUS (Atlantic University Sport) is home to the BEST university hockey conference in the country, annually producing a galaxy of elite players. Profiling former AUS stars (many with recent pro experience), the MOLSON OLD STAR tournament features 10 teams and 18 games over a two day period. The lineup includes all the current 8 AUS varsity hockey programs along with Mount Allison and Cape Breton University, two schools that were members of the AUAA until the mid-90s.

By far, the highlight of the weekend is the camaraderie and fellowship that is fostered by the 10 hockey reunions, all being staged at the same time!
