The Canadian Cup

It's A Small Hockey World After All

The Canadian Multicultural Hockey League (CMHL) will be holding a tournament this December in Toronto that will bring many of the traditionally non-hockey playing communities of Canada together to compete for the Canadian Cup and multicultural hockey glory.
The CMHL is motivating those communities, would-be players and spectators alike, to fully appreciate one of Canada's biggest legacies—the game of hockey!

...Teams include; Hellenic Lightning, Italian Gladiators, Portuguese Sea Wolves, Nubian Kings, First Nation Thunder, Chinese Ice Dragons, Serbian White Eagles, South Asian Vipers, Croatian Knights, Macedonian Lions, Polish Hussars, Russian Kremlins, Finnish Sisu, Irish Shamrocks, and the Japanese Arashi.

With all these different ethnic backgrounds participating you may ask why there is no Canadian team? The CMHL promptly answers: Because we are all Canadians! This is not about country versus country. This is about Canadians playing against other Canadians.
I'm pulling for the Irish Shamrocks.
