Thanks PEI — 2017 recap

Founded in 2000 by NHL Coach Rick Bowness, in collaboration with several retired NHL’ers, living in the Maritimes and a group of committed business leaders in the Halifax area.

Maritime NHL’ers for Kids is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to establishing long-term, sustainable funding to help remove the financial barriers preventing young maritime boys and girls from playing minor hockey.


2017 marked our 17th year and our 5th time being hosted in PEI. Over 3,000 young boys and girls have been able to pursue their hockey dreams in NS-NB-PEI

NHLPA — a wonderful partnership


For many years, Maritime NHL’ers for Kids has enjoyed a very strong partnership with the NHLPA and their Goals & Dreams program.

Through this partnership, each year the host Minor Hockey Association receives a donation of twenty-five (25) FULL sets of hockey equipment.

For 2017, this donation will be made to Hockey PEI during the TD Bank Gala Celebrity Dinner & Auction July 26 at the Delta Prince Edward.

We are proud of our partnership with the NHLPA and commend them for the generosity of the Goals & Dreams program for being a catalyst in reducing the financial barriers preventing young boys and girls from playing minor hockey in NS-NB-PEI. Over the lifetime of our working relationship, as many as 300 full sets of hockey equipment have been donated..!

We thank the NHLPA very much for being such an amazing partner.

Minor Hockey Caddie Info

Caddie tile photo 2Maritime NHL’ers for Kids is a celebrity fundraising golf tournament held on a rotating basis in PEI, NS, and NB.

For 2018, we are celebrating our 19th year by returning to Nova Scotia, to the famed Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa.

Each year, as many as 130+ PeeWee and Bantam aged boys and girls are invited to enjoy an exciting fun-filled day. In groups of three (3), minor hockey youth are assigned as ‘caddies’ to our 36 teams, each featuring a maritime hockey celebrity “captain”. It’s an incredible opportunity to spend a day with a hockey legend, and one that year after year, we get rave reviews about! 

Because our caddies are kids, our tournament has a zero alcohol policy on the course. To learn more, visit the About Us and Tournament Information tabs in the navigation bar.
