Listen to the 2018 Canadian Blind Hockey Tournament

Yellow and red players shake hands post-game on the ice

AMI-audio Live is excited to broadcast March 30 to April 1 from the 2018 Canadian National Blind Hockey Tournament, held at the historic Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto. 

Over 80 players from across North America will skate during this three-day tournament. This year Canadian Blind Hockey is proud to introduce the new Children and Youth Division. Through this opportunity, children are given the chance to participate in Canada’s unofficial national pastime in a fully inclusive way.

Of course, the action on the ice is competitive and players from teams across North America will descend on Toronto to battle it out for the tournament’s top spot! Join us for three days of described games with Mike Ross delivering colour commentary and post-game analysis from The Neutral Zone team, David Bastl and Jeff Ryman. We’ll also have interviews with players, fans and organizers.

Two players, one red and one yellow vie for the puck on the ice.
