"Deep Freeze" Hockey Tournament starts tonight
Students from Boston area schools will face off in a two-day hockey tournament to raise money for the Boston Medical Center (BMC) Breast Cancer Research Center. The East Boston High School Jets will host the fourth annual Deep Freeze high school hockey tournament, sponsored by East Boston Savings Bank, tonight and tomorrow. Founded by East Boston High School’s hockey coach, Robert Anthony, the tournament donates funds raised to the BMC Breast Cancer Research Center as a tribute to Mr. Anthony’s wife, Jacki, who is a breast cancer survivor. Student athletes from East Boston High School wear pink hockey shirts in honor of loved ones both present and past who have been affected by breast cancer. A player from each team will receive a $200 scholarship.
