Scotiabank Challenge of Champions 2023

The NYHL’s annual Scotiabank Challenge of Champions weekend is fast approaching.

The Scotiabank Challenge of Champions is an All Star event where the best players of a Tier are put on a team to faceoff against the Championship team of that tier, hence the name “Challenge of Champions.”

The All Star players will receive a commemorative NYHL All Star T-Shirt and the Champions will receive their hard earned championship trophies during an awards ceremony at the end of each game.

Every player also receives a team picture (taken and printed on site prior to their game) and a complimentary hot-dog or hamburger from our BBQ vendor, Grandpa Ken’s Back Bacon and Burgers, after the game.

It is a lively and engaging event for all attendants with music, vendors, action shot photography and, of course, exciting hockey.

For those attending the event as All Stars or Champions, please read below:

  • Please arrive at the arena 40 minutes before your game time.
  • Players will get dressed and, both the All Star and Champion teams, will take their team picture before their game.
  • All Star teams will wear their team’s AWAY/DARK jerseys and the Champion team will wear their HOME/WHITE jerseys, unless otherwise notified.
  • Games are 30 minutes running time. (10/10/10 or 15/15)

The Scotiabank Challenge of Champions has been a North York Hockey League staple for nearly 40 years and wouldn’t be what it is without the dedication of dozens of volunteers who simply love the game and are committed to giving back to their community.

It is the cherry on top of an already memorable hockey year!

The 2018/2019 Scotiabank Challenge of Champions saw the Champions win the weekend with a record of 23-9-4.

The 2021/2022 Scotiabank Challenge of Champions saw the All Stars win the weekend with a record of 16-5-3.

Who will be the big weekend winners this year? That’s easy, anyone who comes down to the rink!
