The Aspen Leafs and Littleton Hawks faced off Monday night in the championship game of the 2009 Colorado Avalanche Quebec Qualifier Tournament at Pepsi Center. After a highly competitive game, the Hawks came out on top and have been designated the Colorado Avalanche Pee Wee team for the 2009-10 Season. The team will receive the opportunity to represent the Avalanche in the 51st Quebec International Pee Wee Tournament in February 2010.
The Quebec International Pee Wee Hockey Tournament is known as the largest and most prestigious Pee Wee tournament in the world. It hosts 110 teams of 11-and 12-year-old hockey players from over 14 countries each year.
The Quebec Qualifier Tournament began play at Westminster Promenade Ice Center on Thursday, Oct. 22 and then moved to Pepsi Center for quarterfinal, semifinal and championship play.
