RCI and RCIS showed off their excitement for the upcoming NHL season by coupling Jersey Day with a mini stick hockey tournament last week.

Students and teachers wore jerseys from a variety of sports teams, most notably the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs.

The mini stick teams consisted of five players who competed in the three day tournament. Seven teams participated at lunch and drew in a crowd of over 40 spectators.

"We decided to do the tournament to show case our true Canadian spirit for the love of hockey," explained Student President, Mitchell Hanniman.

Although the winning team will not go home with the Stanley Cup, they will win a pizza lunch.
