Pond hockey tourney

Winter Skate at Patriot Place presented by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care will host its second annual Pond Hockey Tournament beginning tomorrow through next Sunday at the open air ice rink by Gillette Stadium. “We are looking to expand on last year’s success,’’ said Patriot Place general manager Brian Earley. “The tournament is modeled after traditional Canadian pond hockey tournaments. The games are free-flowing and fast-moving, with no checking and no goalies, but there are boards, so the goals pile up quickly.’’ The four-on-four tournament will consist of up to 32 teams in a double-elimination format.
