Langley Sportsplex tourney honours boy’s memory

Jordan Owens’ greatest love was hockey, so it’s only fitting that an annual initiation hockey tournament in Walnut Grove honours his memory.

The 16th annual Jordan Owens Initiation Tournament was held March 18 to 22 at the Langley Sportsplex and drew 56 teams, including 26 Langley Minor Hockey Association squads, 30 from surrounding communities, and seven from outside the Lower Mainland.

The tournament is dedicated to the memory of Jordan Owens, who passed away July 8, 1999, after a long battle with cancer.

Over its previous 15 years, the tournament has raised more than $150,000 for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
