Minor Atom "Play Outdoor Game in Buffalo"
Submitted By Rob Schmidt on Tuesday, January 20, 2015
It was a cold day, - 6C on Saturday morning January 17th, when the Minor Atom Team was preparing to play their 3rd round robin game at the River Works outdoor arena in downtown Buffalo.

Players and parents arrived to this unique new venue .... and I mean new. Just opened and the games of this tournament were the first to be hosted on the 2 ice pads.
You could hear our players referring to this as their own version of the "Winter Classic"!
Make shift dressing rooms with portable dividers, banquet chairs, tarps and industrial construction site heaters. A short walk from the dressing rooms to the outdoor ramp, past players and fans to a common area leading to the ice surface.
Parents and fans huddled around the ice surface and atop spectator galleries which overlooked the ice pads. Coffee and Coffee Plus in hand to cheer on the team vs. an arch rival the Brampton 45's, Game On!
A very close fought battle on a smaller than regulation ice surface. Brampton positioned themselves to a 2-0 lead. YSE battled back and late in the 3rd period scored a goal, held off their opponent to secure a 3-2 victory.
An exciting game with what this is all about .... great memories for 9 & 10 year old hockey players for years to come!
