#MMC100 Trophy Tour Stop 11: Sarnia, Ontario

The Canadian Hockey League’s 100th Mastercard Memorial Cup celebrations continued this past week in Sarnia, the eleventh stop on a season long tour visiting 17 CHL communities in eight different provinces.

Sarnia was the fourth stop in the province of Ontario with two more upcoming in March at Owen Sound on the 3rd and St. Catharines on the 17th.  The Imperial City is home to the Ontario Hockey League’s Sting who are currently one of the top teams in the entire CHL.  They flexed their muscle over the weekend before a national television audience defeating highway 402 rivals the London Knights on Sportsnet’s Saturday Showcase.
