2015 Lawyers' Cup
2017 LAWYERS' CUP CHAMPION STIKEMAN ELLIOTT
Six dedicated teams and some very diehard fans braved the freeze on Saturday for a long and successful day of hockey at the 10th annual Lawyers’ Cup. This year’s competition included teams from Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, Proskauer, Skadden, Stikeman Elliot, Weil, and Bailey Duquette.
The games were competitive and all six teams either tied or won at least one of their initial three matches. In the quarterfinals, Proskauer defeated the top seeded APKS to advance to the finals against Stikeman, a repeat of last year’s championship game. It was a close match between two highly skilled teams, but Stikeman pulled away with a 3-1 win and were named Lawyers’ Cup Champions, yet again!
Mid-way through the tournament, Ice Hockey in Harlem’s squirt team played a showcase game against the Central Park Rangers and won by a score of 7-1!!
Together, the six teams raised $61,790 through online donations, $30,000 of which was raised by repeat Fundraising Award winner, Skadden.
At the post-tournament banquet, Kevin Westgarth, former NHL player, Stanley Cup Winner and the NHL’s VP of business development and international affairs, presented the Tournament Cup and the Fundraising Award.
Overall, the day was a huge success, both with fundraising and with hockey. Ice Hockey in Harlem would like to thank all of the participating teams and supporters, as well as all of our generous event sponsors. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did and we’re very grateful for your dedication to the children of Ice Hockey in Harlem.
