Initiation-aged players battled for the puck on Saturday during the Jordan Owens Memorial Tournament, held March 16 to 19 at the Langley Sportsplex. The 17th annual tournament raises funds for the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation in honour of Owens, a nine-year-old Langley boy who passed away in 1999 after a battle with cancer. With final numbers still being tallied, this year’s event is believed to have raised $20,000, pushing the total to $200,000.
