Aasman Benefit Tournament Already a Huge Success

As coaches and players take to the ice today at FLC they are remembering one man in particular – Tony Aasman. Aasman, a city Hockey veteran, lost his battle with cancer just under a year ago. As his devotion to the game, even after his passing, lived on. Aasman lived for Kids minor Hockey in the city and people are remembering him with a 4-on-4 Tournament at the Leisure Centre today. Although he didn’t play much competitive hockey growing up, he had plenty of success teaching the game. It was September 9, 2008 when he had the chance to coach for a final time in a Tigers’ pre-season matchup, when his son Ryan came home with the Prince Albert Raiders to verse our Tabbies. Just 8 days later, Ryan had to make his way home again to say good-bye to his dad for the final time.

So if you have the opportunity, head up to the FLC today and get in on the action, you can also enter raffles for items like a Willie Desjardins-Tyler Ennis Canada World Juniors Photo, Ennis Team Canada Jersey, and more. The price for the raffle is 10 for $5 and of course, goes to a good cause.
