The Montreal Winter Box Classic 2018 is officially nine days from opening face-off. I want to begin by thanking all the teams involved for their hard work in getting squads together. A task that’s a lot harder than one would think. The Winter Box Classic 2018 will host 8 teams from 3 different nations and provinces.
Location : Le Rinque (8355 Chemin Montview, Mont-Royal, QC H4P 2L9)
Winter Box Classic 2018 – Teams
- Caughnawaga Injuns: Dirt McComber’s coming to the WBC with his well known squad the Caughnawaga Injuns (Dirt’s spelling not mine). Dirt is the commissioner of the Three Nations Lacrosse League and has a long reach for talented lacrosse players. His squad will be hungry and ready to go I can assure you that.
- Windor Eagles: Or Les Aigles de Windsor are the Quebec Senior C champions of 2017. The team captain told me the boys are super excited for this challenge. Underestimating Windsor would be a big mistake.
- Toronto Tigers: The Winter Box Classic 2018 will mark the second tournament the Tigers have been too in 2018! A newly formed team based out of Toronto, the Tigers look to make their mark in the North American box lacrosse circuit.
- Wendake: Coming from the Huron nation, the boys of Wendake are coming to Montreal to gain some experience and show the rest of the province that they mean business!
- New Brunswick Buccaneers: The Buccs are a New Brunswick based University Field Lacrosse team who took some ringers from Nova Scotia and even Ontario. Am thrilled that a team from the Maritimes coming down and excited to have a few with these boys.
- Akwesasne Thunder: Ty Thompson’s putting a team together and if you know anything about Akwesasne, they aren’t gonna come to loss.
- Ottawa Axemen: A mixture of alumni and current Ottawa Axemen, these boys have enough experience and talent to maybe take the whole thing.
- West Bay Bombers: A contingent of beauties who together are baptising the West Bay Bombers into the box lacrosse circuit.
