Redhawks is an elite hockey program. Redhawks hockey is playing in the highly competitive Montreal Meltdown tournament, make sure to visit their website
Redhawks recruits players from all over the world. Quebec is their main base but players also come from USA, Ontario and many other places. We also had the chance to have several Europeans players from countries such as Sweden, Finland, Serbia, Hungary, Germany and Slovakia. Redhawks hockey is taking charge of finding quality coaches at all level from various backgrounds. They will not only be knowledgeable but also serious and good teachers
Each Redhawks team will display an average of 10 forwards, 6 defenseman and 2 goalies. We might go with fewer players on some occasions, but we strongly believe 17-18 competitive players working together is the key to success. Everybody will get the chance to play and we hope everyone enjoys the experience
