 Congratulations to Edmonton Savages for winning the 2018 Men's National Championship.

They also won in 2017 making it back to back National Championships.  Also Congratulations to Edmonton Top Whale who also qualified for this years Nationals.  Edmonton Top Whale, backstopped by ex-Just For Fun goalie Carson Schreiber, had a good showing though lost a close game in the quarter finals and failed to advance to the medal round.  Great to see Edmonton Ball Hockey doing so great on the National stage.
