Canadian team wins Costa Rica’s first international ice hockey tourney

November 20, 2017

The Calgary Citizens defeated the Los Angeles Ruination 7-5 to win Costa Rica’s first-ever ice hockey tournament on Sunday.

The two-day tourney took place in Central America’s only ice skating rink, located at the Castillo Country Club in Heredia. Senior level teams from Calgary, Alberta, Los Angeles, California, the Falkland Islands and the Castillo Country Club competed in this unprecedented event.

It even drew the attention of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who sent a message of greeting to participating teams.

“This tournament offers a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Castillo Knights Hockey Club and to reflect upon its success. I would like to commend the players taking part in this event for their hard work and enthusiasm for the sport,” Trudeau wrote.
