The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The World Sledge Hockey Chal­lenge is com­ing to Char­lot­te­town in De­cem­ber. “To think that I might have the chance to play in front of my fam­ily and friends gives me the chills,” said Sum­mer­side na­tive Billy Bridges, who leads the team in goals at this year’s com­pe­ti­tion in Nova Sco­tia. “No mat­ter where we get to wear the (Team Canada) jersey, it’s al­ways a great hon­our to rep­re­sent your coun­try. No doubt, the fans in P.E.I. will be be­hind our team.” The Char­lot­te­town tour­na­ment, which will be played at MacLauch­lan Arena from Dec. 4 to 11, will be used as a tune-up for the world cham­pi­onships. MacLauch­lan Arena hosted the chal­lenge in 2008 and 2009.
