    2016/17 Youth Hockey League (Asia Region): The Great End of the Beijing Stop

    The final stop of the 2016/17 Youth Hockey League (Asia Region) (AYHL) came to an end at Hokay Ice Centre in Beijing, China on January 16, 2017 at 11:30am. The Beijing team became the eventual champion of the AYHL and brought home the gold medals with a 5:1 victory. The Harbin team finished as the runner-up in the AYHL league. In addition to these two winning teams, both the Hong Kong Academy of Ice Hockey and Wuhan Dragons Ice Hockey Club also competed in Beijing, during which they brought the excitement of live hockey games to an audience.

    In supporting the winter sport development in China, the Hong Kong Academy of Ice Hockey and the Hong Kong Amateur Hockey Club re-launched the AYHL in 2016. To achieve this aim, we invited the NHL Alumni Association to serve as a collaborating organisation to pass on ice hockey knowledge and culture as well as to provide teamwork experiences for players. During the AYHL league, various ice hockey activities and workshops were arranged, aiming to enrich young players with unique hockey experience.

    Players involved in the 2016/17 AYHL are aged between 8 and 10.  After the first three stops in Shanghai, Taipei, and Hong Kong,  the last stop is finally reached in Beijing on January 14, 2017 for a 3-day of intense game. Led by the NHL Alumni Association member Barry Beck (former NHL New York Rangers Captain), Russia’s famous hockey coach Nikolaeav Vladimir, and former Chinese Women Ice Hockey Team member Tan Anqi, an ice hockey exchange clinic was hosted during the Beijing stop for the players to learn more about ice hockey skills from the pros.

    Players from the AYHL were invited by the HC Kunlun Red Star to watch the KHL games live at LeSports Centre. A half-time show was delivered for the spectators to keep their attention and share their enthusiasm for ice hockey.

    With our highly motivated AYHL event planning team, we look forward to more opportunities for our hockey players to broaden their vision and deepen their knowledge while getting involved in various international exchange activities.
