The Northern Ontario Hockey Association is hosting the Central Region AAA Junior Championship and Kapuskasing is making a bid. From the Kapuskasing EDC, Andre Robichaud says the over 150 players, staff and parents visiting will be great for local businesses. Robichaud says the Flyers have been waiting five years since their last bid in 2011 for another opportunity to host the tournament. He says the tournament would most likely have a packed house for every game and it would be a huge boost for sports in the Northeast.
