It was a fun game and the perfect way to pay tribute to any hockey player.
On Feb. 1, Blackfalds Minor Hockey held the 10th annual Cody Dennis Memorial Hockey Game at the Blackfalds Multiplex.
Just prior to singing the national anthem, players and fans observed a moment of silence to remember another hockey player whose life had been cut short. Damian Pannenbecker, the man who died in a crash near Olds last month was remembered.
For the first period of the game, the 1998-1999 Bantam Bulldogs faced off against the Bantam Pee Wee Bulldogs.
While the young pee wee players were faced with opponents much larger and much more experienced than themselves, they made short work of the memorial team, winning the period 6 – 0.
After the first intermission, the score was reset and the memorial team got a sound 8 – 3 thrashing by the Blackfalds Minor Hockey coaches and officials.
