Last night saw the youth category of the 2017 MegaIce Hockey 5s draw to a close, bringing down the curtains on five days of intense, hard-hitting ice hockey. 

 

Since its inception in 2012, the competition has cemented its position as one of the premier tournaments in the Asia-Pacific region by attracting the best and brightest from Asia and beyond.

 

This year was certainly no exception, with players and coaches from Beijing, Australia, Singapore and Canada descending on Kowloon Bay.  

With the Winter Olympics set to take place in Hebei in 2022, China has stepped up its initiative to popularise ice hockey and will be pleased by the Beijing teams' victories in the younger age groups.

Hong Kong too had much to cheer about, with the Hong Kong Typhoon Selects Blue fielding winning teams in the Squirt A and Bantam A divisions. 

While the younger Hong Kong Selects Blue squad had thrown down the gauntlet in their earlier 5-1 demolition of the Shanghai Warriors in their final, the senior squad adopted a more measured approach with a 2-0 victory over the Australian Buccaneers to claim the Bantam A crown.

In the Bantam B final, the Hong Kong Ice Hockey Association defeated the Baird Dbees with a 3-1 scoreline to complete Hong Kong's dominance in the Bantam division.
