NHL Offseason Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Saturday Open Forum

LATAM Cup ongoing at Panthers IceDen

The 2019 LATAM Cup is taking place as we speak at IceDen in Coral Springs. All games are free and open to the public. So if you need a hockey fix...

This year the tournament will host eight national hockey teams in four divisions (Men’s DI, DII, Women and Youth U16) including Argentina, Puerto Rico, Chile, Jamaica, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico (B) and Venezuela.

All games will be three 14-minute periods with an ice cut in between games.

The mission of the Amerigol Miami International Hockey Association is to provide hockey players in Latin America and the Caribbean the opportunity to showcase their talent and raise awareness of hockey in their countries, while at the same time growing hockey within these same communities in South Florida.

Last year Colombia defeated Mexico B 12-3 in the final and were awarded the first champions of the 2018 Amerigol LATAM Cup.
