Kemptville Panther's Eric Gutknecht Memorial Hockey Tournament

This year's 32 team tournament was again a resounding success. Sponsored in part by All Signs, Gabriel's Pizza and Game Breakers, close to 500 hockey players were each presented with a Stanley Cup T-Shirt, Stanley Cup magnets, hockey cards and other goodies. There is no better hockey then kids simply playing for the love of hockey with no politics nor pressure. The hockey tables in the arena staging area was a great hit. Hats off to all the organizers, volunteers, players, parents, referees for an action packed, fun and exciting week end!

Hockey Tournament

    The Eric Gutknecht Memorial Bursary is proud to be part of the Kemptville District Minor Novice Hockey Tournament each year.  Started in 2011 the 32 team tournament takes to the ice at the Kemptville Municipal Centre at the end of March break (this year March 16th, 17th, and 18th.)  This year the tournament was proudly sponsored by All State Insurance and Gabriel's Pizza and saw many raffle tables, 50-50 draws and the bursary itself, sold cook books, jams & jellies and held a draw for a signed Heritage Jason Spezza jersey, two limited edition Jason Spezza Hockey cards and a official NHL ALL STAR cap.  The proud winner of this draw was Nicolas Campeau  from Kemptville.  The Adam Harlow Fellowship Fund also sold pancake breakfasts both Saturday and Sunday to raise funds for underprivileged children unable to pay for hockey registration. 

  

   This year and last year saw six Kemptville teams participate, three in each the B and C level.  T-shirts were handed out to every participant; medals for all the championship teams; hockey cards were presented to each player by Eric's dad.  This years winners in the C Division included Kemptville Panthers 3 (C) Rockland Nats (B)and Alexander Glens (A).  In the B Division the winners included the Stittsville Ice Dogs (C), North Dundas Demons (B), and the Kemptville Panthers 2 (A).

Kemptville Panther's Eric Gutknecht Memorial Hockey Tournament


Eric, as you look down upon this event today

Know that the love we hold will never fade away

Excuse our selfishness for wanting so much more

A young man playing hockey and wearing 44

We wish you were here to provide us with some insight

To hear your random comments would be such a delight

Your probably wondering "hey whats all the fuss?"

As now you are living inside of everyone of us

"Dad, what's with all the poetry, your looking kind of gay

Drop the puck that's in your hand and let the players play"
