Team India, in conjunction with the ECHL’s Brampton Beast, announced their roster Tuesday morning for the upcoming exhibition game at the Powerade Centre this Friday.

Among the highlights on the roster is Harry Mahesh, a Vanderhoof, BC native with pro experience in the Southern Professional Hockey League. Karndeep Natt also is a notable name, having played in the Ontario Junior Hockey League and the Greater Metro Hockey League, both Junior A leagues in Southern Ontario.

India isn’t known for their long hockey history, having only played annually as a national team since 2009. The team only competes in one tournament a year, the Challenge Cup of Asia, a low level tournament aimed at helping Asian teams develop in a low cost event. This year, India will be taking part in the Division I tournament, taking place in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan from April 9th-14th against Kyrgystan, Macau, Oman, Malaysia, and Qatar.

The beast, Canada’s only ECHL franchise, is currently affiliated with the Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s Ice Caps of the AHL. The game will be the first time an ECHL team has faced an international team, something that is rare among any league in general.

Tickets for the Friday, October 9th contest are available for purchase on Brampton’s website for $29.90 plus HST.

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

    Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
