The Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament is widely considered the preeminent competition for 11-12 year olds in the world.

“We are proud to represent the Vegas Golden Knights – and all of Las Vegas youth hockey – in the Quebec International Pee-Wee tournament,” said Vegas Golden Knights Director of Hockey Operations Misha Donskov. “The Quebec International Pee-Wee tournament is world class – there is not another youth hockey competition around like it. The number of NHL players who have played in the tournament is impressive and we hope to one day see Jr. Golden Knights names listed alongside these current and former NHL stars. We are grateful for Cirque du Soleil’s support in helping make this trip possible.”

Thanks to the partnership with Cirque du Soleil, the club’s travel and tournament expenses will be significantly reduced.

“As a company founded in Quebec, Canada and now thriving in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil finds it rewarding to come full circle and support our Vegas Jr. Golden Knights Pee-Wee AA team as they compete in our homeland,” said Lou D’Angeli, VP of Marketing and PR for Cirque du Soleil. “Having been a member in the Las Vegas community for more than 25 years, we take great pride fostering the talent in our youth.”
