Your team is cordially invited to the 6th Annual Nathan D. Crowell Memorial Hockey Tournament hosted by Greater Providence Youth Hockey Association on March 30-31, 2019 at Brown University’s Meehan Auditorium. This season we plan to host PeeWee A, Squirt A, and Squirt A2/B and Mite A teams.

About Nathan D. Crowell

Nathan D. Crowell was a hockey player that paid the ultimate price to win a game for his team.

On October 25, 2007 with three seconds left in the game, Nathan blocked a desperation shot from a member of the opposing team and saved the game for his team. However, in doing so, Nathan paid the ultimate price. The hero of that game died in the hospital emergency room that night. 

The Annual Nathan D. Crowell Tournament honors Nathan's memory.
