Each year the OMHA hosts the tournament in memory of Mike Hazen, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Hazen, who died unexpected in 1990 at age 15.
The crunch of the ice beneath the blades and the roar of the crowd bring remembrance of players like Mike Hazen. Throughout his life, Mike modeled sportsmanship, good citizenship and dedication to everything he did. In remembrance of his life and accomplishments we honor him, his memory and his family and friends by hosting the Mike Hazen Tournament, reads the OMHA testimonial which runs in the tournament program every year.
