The first game of the 2015 Pan-American Ice Hockey Games took place in Mexico City today, with Colombia eventually taking the 8-0 win over the Argentina A team.

For Colombia, the win was a great start for their small hockey program. A year ago, the team went 3-2-0 in five games at the first ever PAIHG’s, earning a bronze medal along the way following a 9-1 over Argentina. The two teams also met earlier in the tournament last year, with Colombia securing their first ever hockey game 11-1.

Today, however, Colombia would record their first ever hockey shutout with an 8-0 victory. While stats and info from the tournament is very scarce, it’s unknown yet as to who the big offensive stars were in the opening game.

Brazil and the Mexican U17 team will play each other in the second men’s game of the day at 3:30pm EST.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
