Skate of Origin 2016

The New Zealand Hockey League and the Ice Black management have this year collaborated with the intention to deliver the best and most fiercely competed North vs South All Star Game ever.

We are seeking the top 40 players in NZIHL, 20 of the best from
each island to battle it out for the Glass shield and island supremacy on the 3rd
of September.

The Ice Blacks are also opening their registration of interest
for their 2017 campaign for the Division II World Championship games in
Auckland.

To add more competition and spice to the North vs South game
up, the game will also be used to scout and select players for the 2017 Ice
Black squad.

Players that are interested in the selection for both the
North vs South game and Ice Blacks can get more information with their NZIHL
team General Managers.

Registration closes Friday 29th of July.

North Island and South Island teams announced Tuesday 2nd
of August.
