President of Hockey Manitoba, Brian Franklin, notes "we're very pleased to offer this event to Initiation players from across the province to get their season underway, and for some their minor hockey career as it may very well be their first hockey games ever. We're also excited to have Tim Hortons on board with this special occasion as it's a natural fit considering their background supporting grassroots hockey.
