This weekend the Timbits Hockey Tournament was held. This is a fun tournament for age 5-8 year old players and sponsored by Tim Horton's, a chain of coffee and doughnut shops. During the Saturday and Sunday Junior hockey games the participants and their coaches paraded during the 2nd intermission. This tournament is held all over Canada but started in Moncton. Many now-famous NHL players have passed through the Timbits hockey program. "Timbits" by the way are little doughnuts, like "doughnut holes", so a good name for these tiny hockey players.
