Imjin Hockey Classic

Fierce historic rivalry hits the ice

Two of the Canadian Army’s biggest hockey rivals, the Van Doos (Royal 22e Régiment) and the Patricias (Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry), go head-to-head at the annual Imjin Classic on Saturday, October 26 at TD Place Lansdowne in Ottawa.

The Imjin Classic is a hockey rivalry 67 years in the making. In 1952, during a break in the Korean War, these two Canadian regiments played their original championship game on the frozen Imjin River, and a military tradition was born.

The action between these two foes will be fierce. Winners of the last two Imjin Classics, the Van Doos will be looking to extend their championship streak, while the Patricias will be looking to take glory for themselves.

Join us for the game, Saturday, October 26 at TD Place Lansdowne. Doors open at 1:30 p.m., with the puck-drop at 3 p.m. Admission is free!
