The Essex Ravens Atom AE squad ventured to Buffalo New York, the second weekend of January, to participate in the Buffalo River Outdoor Classic Tournament Series.

The team had to brave the outdoor weather elements for this tournament, as it was played on outdoor rinks. It was an experience that each player will remember for a lifetime.

It was noted to team officials that the boards and player benches at the Healthy Zone rink were those used in the very first outdoor NHL game ever played in Buffalo in 2006 at Ralph Wilson Stadium, a game won by the Pittsburg Penguins 2-1 in OT.

Even the freezing weather couldn’t dishearten the team from Essex, who performed very well. They finished the round robin version of the tournament in second place, behind Ashburn Virginia, whom they would also faced in the tourney finals.

Tournament Results:

Game 1: Essex Ravens 2 Rochester N.Y. 1-Reid (Brophey), St. John (Brophey) - GOALIE: Huntley

Game 2: Essex Ravens 2 Ashburn VA. 4--N/R

Game 3: Essex Ravens 3 Johnstown PA. 3-Reid, St. John (Fleming), St. John - GOALIE: Huntley
