For those hungry for holiday hockey, the 2019 Frozen Cup welcomed 50 teams across seven divisions in Voorhees, New Jersey. With both team and individual registrants, some groups played on their winter teams while others shared uniforms with teammates they’d just met prior to the tournament. Because of that diverse group of players and teams, the Frozen Cup continually proves to be one of LEGACY’s more dynamic tournaments on the calendar.
