Thank you for attending the 26th Annual Michael Hughes Memorial Squirt Hockey Tournament. We are pleased to have all of you here. This tournament is a cooperative effort between the Eau Claire Youth Hockey Association, the Eau Claire Parks and Recreation Department, and the Pat and Jana Hughes Family.
This tournament is dedicated to Mike Hughes, a 10-year-old 1st-year squirt who passed away unexpectedly on 12/5/1996. His parents, Pat and Jana, have co-sponsored this tournament since its inception and contributed very generously to help build the initial Michael Hughes rink. Any proceeds generated from this tournament will assist Eau Claire Youth Hockey to continue our support of youth hockey at all levels.
Pat and Jana Hughes and their son Jack reside in Madison, WI. They remain involved with all the setup for this tournament in memory of their son, Mike. A lot of preparation has been put forth to help ensure that this will be a fun event for all!
