Thank You!
Last weekend Port Stanley Minor Hockey Association hosted our Annual Memorial Tournament.  For those who may not be familiar with this tournament. This tournament started in 2015 as the Greg Pratt and Ron Johnson Memorial Tournament. 

In 2019 it was re-branded to the Port Stanley Minor Hockey Association Memorial Tournament and would then also honour Matt Moyes, and Disco Dave Johnstone.  Greg, Ron, Matt and Dave all contributed their time and were proud members of the PMSHA community.  We are forever grateful for them and their contributions to help make Port Stanley hockey what it is.  Their dedication and legacy will continue to live on through this Memorial tournament and in the hearts of many at the arena and on the ice.


On behalf of myself, the PSMHA Executive and our entire organization, we would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to the following individuals, community members, community groups, businesses and Families.
