Hundreds of five to eight-year-old hockey players took to the ice at the Walnut Grove Sportsplex for the Jordan Owens Memorial Spring Initiation Hockey Tournament March 14 to 18.

Around 40 girls and boys teams took part in the five-day tournament which celebrates the memory of Jordan Owens.

Jordan passed away in 1999 at the age of eight after a battle with cancer. He was an avid hockey player.

The Langley Minor Hockey Association hosts the tournament every March and raises money in honour of Jordan, for the B.C. Children’s Hospital.

This was the 14th year of the tournament and more than $14,000 was raised. Altogether, more than $120,000 has now been raised in the tournament.
