When it comes to hockey in New England there is no bigger name then the Bruins. They bring a large fan base and sponsorship to the tournament that will help promote the mission of the Heroes Cup. The Mission of the Heroes Cup is to promote health and fitness to our first responders through hockey, while raising awareness and fund for many different charities. We bring teams together from around the world to compete. With the Bruins as our partner we will be able to offer a truly first-class tournament which is what our participants really deserve for the work they do off the ice," said Mike Matros, President and founder of Hero's Cup Hockey Inc.
