MOORHEAD, Minn. -- The Lamoureux Hockey Cup, which recently concluded at the end of August, has seen its success build on and off the ice.

This year’s tournament had divisions for years 2009 through 2013/2014, with about 1,000 players from across the Midwest and Canada, utilizing five facilities in Fargo-Moorhead.

“It’s a big tournament,” said tournament ambassador Matt Cullen of Moorhead, a three-time Stanley Cup winner. “There's a lot of teams. And it's nice when it's local. We often have to travel for good hockey and good competition for our kids. So for us to be able to have it here, at our facilities in our hometown, it's always nice.”

Organizers say the tournament provides good age-appropriate competition as well as providing an economic boost to the area.

“We're bringing over close to 1,000 players and close to 2,000 parents to the Fargo-Moorhead area,” tournament organizer Pierre-Paul Lamoureux said. “So the economic impact is on a large scale and that's something that we're excited to do and to be part of the Fargo-Moorhead community.”
