Men's hockey tourney starts today

The 12th annual Craig Men's Elite Hockey Tournament begins play today at the Moffat County Ice Arena.

Nine teams have signed up for the three-day competition, including the Craig Red Dawgs, the Steamboat Mad Dogs and the Steamboat Coyotes, as well as teams from Rock Springs, Laramie, Grand Junction, Denver, Glenwood Springs and Crested Butte.

The Craig Red Dawgs face the Steamboat Mad Dogs at 6:15 p.m. Friday night. Saturday they open against Rock Springs at 7:30 a.m., before playing Glenwood Springs at 4:15 p.m., and Denver at 9:15 p.m.

Playoff games begin Sunday.

"Our Red Dawgs' goal: Play on Sunday," Greg Neal wrote in a release. "Our defense is held together by Appleton, Wisc., native Jim Neton and Canadian Art Smith. Our offensive prowess comes from Mike Armstrong & Mark Oxley. If these four players produce their usual greatness, and the rest of us commit to our typical relentless style of play: we'll make it to Sunday."

In goal are Justin Anthony and Jim Reiman.

"Both our goalies are on top of their games and ready to play," Neal said in the release.

This is the biggest men's tournament on the Western Slope, according to the release.

Defending champion is Rock Springs, which beat Steamboat Coyotes, 8-3, for last year's title.
