2022 PeeWee Quebec Schedule Released, Set For May 9 Start Date
On Tuesday, tournament organizers behind the International Pee-Wee Quebec announced the full slate of scheduled games for the 61st annual event. It is a big day for the youth hockey world, as one of the most iconic tournaments in the game returns after a two-year hiatus.

The event is typically hosted in February of every winter, however, much like many expected dates over the past two seasons, that has changed and changed again. PeeWee Quebec has been canceled, rescheduled, moved and everything in between over the last 24 months. Tournament general manager Patrick Dom was determined to make the 2022 tournament happen.
“We never came close to canceling, but it often happened that we wondered what we were doing there,” Dom told the Journal de Quebec at Tuesday’s press conference. “One thing is certain, I am now a Tetris champion. A large six-inch cube was passed through a small two-inch circle.”
No doubt, the logistics behind a tournament of this magnitude, with 130 teams from 13 different countries involves a lot of moving pieces. The pay off will certainly be worth the sleepless nights and countless hours invested into making this tournament run.
“When we decided at the beginning of January to put it back in May, if you knew the number of calls and emails we received from people who said to us, ‘Thank you so much for putting it back,’ Dom said. “When we said that we felt like pulling the plug, that’s what made us continue.”
When the event takes place in May, WHH will be on top of all the action with top teams, standout performers and much more from Quebec. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube for the latest news!
