Winter Classic Draft Day
A new idea whose time has come, the Breakaway all draft Winter Classic game was a huge success. The notion to create an all-star style event for local players by building two evenly matched teams through a live draft on Facebook proved allot of fun for all. With rosters set players were treated to the total big game experience. Vintage style Winter Classic jerseys were provided, free sports and energy drinks as well as some adult beverages after the game for the players, while fans received hot chocolate and cookies to enjoy while cheering on their favorite team. The game itself was a back and forth contest with the Dark Team aka Team Pickle prevailing 11-8 over Team Jibbs. St. Louis Cobras forward Pat Morr was selected as Player of the Game.
