Former Vancouver Canucks player and current Community Living BC (CLBC) board member David Babych dropped the puck to launch the sixth-annual Surrey floor hockey tournament for adults with developmental disabilities at the Guildford Recreational Centre on Oct. 21.

The event, sponsored by the City of Surrey, the Fraser Health Authority and CLBC, involved four teams: The Guildford Gladiators, the Becon Trailblazers from Victoria (supported by BeConnected Support Services), the Chilliwack Knights (supported by Chilliwack Society for Community Living) and the Surrey Sharks (sponsored by Fraser Health Authority).

The tournament has really taken off,” said organizer and CLBC employee Charles Partridge. “The athletes work hard all year and the tournament is such a rewarding experience that showcases all that hard work.”
