The American Hockey League and Labatt Blue have
announced that the 2012 Labatt Blue Bubble Hockey
Tournament of Champions presented by the AHL is
now under way, and the Adirondack Phantoms are
one of 11 teams to participate in the tournament.
Entry is free, and no purchase is necessary.
Players must be 21 or older to participate.
The tournament is taking place in three stages.
During January and February, each participating
team is hosting a series of qualifying nights
in local sports bars, restaurants and taverns.
A total of eight qualifiers from each city will
advance to the team finals, which will be held
in AHL arenas to determine each team champion.
Finally, the 11 individual team winners will advance
and earn a trip to the ultimate Tournament of
Champions, scheduled at the Giant Center in Hershey,
Pa., on March 31, 2012.
The winner of the 2012 Labatt Blue Tournament
of Champions presented by the AHL will receive
a Labatt Blue AHL Bubble Hockey game and a mini
replica Calder Cup trophy from the AHL. For a
