Naperville Hosting Nation's Top Hockey Teams


Byline: John Lemon

So, you are an Illinois hockey player who thinks this area offers as high-level competition as anywhere in America.

A couple of Naperville high schools are trying to prove that this week.

Naperville Central and Naperville North are hosting their 14th annual Windy City Hockey tournament at All Seasons Ice Arena.

Even with all the out-of-state talent, this year's champ could very well come from our own backyard. Naperville Central has raced off to a fast start in Metro West play this winter.

While Naperville North is an up-and-coming, young team, Naperville Central has proven it can play with any team in Illinois. Now the Redhawks are hoping to show the same against teams from other states.
