Classique Montréalaise uniting hockey players
Over 150 teams from all over the province gathered at Parc Jean-Drapeau’s Olympic Basin this weekend for an outdoor pond hockey tournament.

The free event was part of Montreal’s 375th anniversary celebrations.

Hockey teams were divided into four divisions; competitive, recreational, 50 + and women’s.

“Guys and girls – they want to win,” said the event’s spokesperson, Jean-Loup Barbeau. “It’s a very fairplay event, but people want to win – it’s the sport of hockey.”
