- Hockey teams from all over the country descended upon Eagle River today.
This morning kicked off the annual Labatt Blue/USA Hockey, Pond Hockey Championships on Dollar Lake.
This is the 11th year Eagle River hosted the event.
"I think today is going great. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Weather wise it's sunny but it's still cold. The ice is holding up. Games are rolling. It looks like they are having a great time," says Tournament Director Katie Holmgren.
Nearly 2000 players will take to the ice on the lake this weekend.
