The Jr Steelers Gold Program made the biggest impact off the ice. The Jr Steelers family of teams was able to raise both the most money and most used hockey gear for charity out of every spring program in the Pacific Spring Showcase Tournament. This shows how lucky we are to have so many amazing families involved in our program that want to make a difference in the hockey community. We would like to thank everyone that was a part of helping make kids happy.
