Montreal Pond Hockey Farewell
October 5th, 2015: Hockey Glacier and the organizing committee for the Montreal Pond Hockey Festival are saddened to announce the closure of the event. After five (5) amazing years, the challenges of managing the annual event on a part time basis have become unsustainable for us. Hockey Glacier would like to thank the Borough of Lachine and all its employees and citizens for their incredible support from day one. And our unending gratitude also goes out to all the players, sponsors and volunteers who joined with us in making the event the largest pond hockey festival in Montréal, the birthplace of hockey. Special Thanks to our Title Sponsor Desjardins, and other sponsors that have been with us since the beginning: Ye Olde Orchard Pub, TSN 690, Molson, Kubota and Pazazz.
Though our time as promoter and organizer of the Montreal Pond Hockey Festival has come to an end, we at Hockey Glacier recognize that the annual event has grown and expanded every year and may be an attractive project for another organization or individual. Any person or organization interested in acquiring and developing the event should contact us immediately via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In closing, we would like to take this opportunity to encourage all of you to contact Mayor Coderre’s office to show your support for the proposed opening of the Lachine Canal as a recreational site in winter.
Thank you all once again for some great moments!

Register now to secure your team’s spot in this great and growing event on spectacular Lac Saint-Louis in historic Old Lachine!
Join hundreds of hockey and outdoor enthusiasts on one of the most historic sections of breathtaking Lac Saint-Louis as Hockey Glacier presents its annual 4vs4 hockey tournament and family skating event – The Montreal Pond Hockey Festival.
Event participants will have a choice of activities and levels to ensure their full enjoyment:
Pond hockey and outdoor skating will never be the same once you lace up your skates and enjoy the fresh air and friendly competition on historic and picturesque Lac Saint-Louis in Old Lachine, Montreal, Quebec. Located just minutes from downtown Montreal, Lac Saint-Louis is one of three fluvial lakes found along Canada’s most impressive and important waterway - the St. Lawrence River.
Montreal, the birth place of hockey, and another Canadian winter can only mean one thing – it’s time to get together to play a little pond hockey with friends and family! This year, why not help us celebrate our national pastime and some of our most cherished childhood memories by playing hockey the way it was meant to be played, on the shores of Lac Saint-Louis within skating distance of the mighty St. Lawrence!
