Special Hockey International Tournament boosts Peterborough special needs teams

The Kawartha Komets and Electric City Maroon & White will split $8,400 from the Special Hockey International Tournament held back in March.

That’s from more than $18,000 in proceeds from the tournament.

The remaining $10,000 will be paid out to alleged fraud victims from the Peterborough Huskies.  Its co-founders were charged in November and will go to trial in January.

Afterwards, the team was rebranded as the Electric City Maroon & White.  It carried on under new leadership.

Each team will put $4,200 into the team’s accounts.  The money could go towards future tournament and travel costs, meals, equipment or ice rentals.
The tournament saw 55 teams, 1,041 athletes and 4,050 visitors come to Peterborough.

SHI was impressed with the community that it may come back again next year.
It would be the first time it’s chosen a community twice to host the tournament.
