A look back at last year's successful tournament would have to include the participation by the Toronto Marlies and their popular inflatable mini-stick arena. 

One of the distinguished representatives of the Toronto Marlies attending our tourney was their mascot, Duke (#75).

In fact, Duke the Dog's Blog included a shout out to the Asian Hockey Tournament in his may 25, 2010 entry, as follows:

Hey Fans Last Saturday, I was joined by the Toronto Marlies The Game Is Fun Tour as we attneded the 21st annual Asian Hockey Championship and Cultural Event!  This year's tournament included 38 teams and over 500 hockey players from acorss Ontario and throughout Canada!

I had a blast playing in net in our inflatable mini stick arena ... and due to my tremendous success, I will now refer to its as Duke Gardens!

I also really enjoyed playing ice hockey alongside all the wonderful and talented youth participants. 

This event was not all about hockey, though!  Yakudos traditional Taiko Japanese drumming really got the crowd excited and the beautiful cultural arts and crafts were both bright and colorful!

I would also like to give a round of APAWS to The AHC and their supporters for generously raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society!

Duke #75
