Hockey in Japan. A dream that Draft Tournament has had for many years is finally coming to fruition this September!
For us it is a far-away land full of energy and culture like we have never seen in North America. So different from the life we know at home that it can be intimidating!
But even in a country that is over 5,000 miles away that is so different, there is one thing we know that can bring us together: the greatest game on earth!
So while celebrating this amazing sport, we also wanted to celebrate the amazing culture of Japan and highlight it’s beautiful art and history on our uniforms.
The theme for the 2019 Japan Draft Tournament is: 日本美術 (pronounced “Nihon bijutsu”)
The third team for Japan is the Cherry Blossoms!
