The Marblehead- St. Lamberts Hockey Exhange is steeped in sportsmanship, camraderie, and tradition. The origins of the exhange, conceptualized by Bud Orne and Bill Haskell, date back to 1964 when the first tournament was played. Each year in November, teams from St. Lamberts Canada travel to Marblehead for a 3 day tournament filled with multi-level events. In turn, the Marblehead squads travel to Canada in February to undergo the same activites. Events include games, a skills tournament, a rising stars mini game, outdoor pond hockey, and a coaches game.
The St. Lambert's Exhange is the highlight of each players hockey season as they are exposed to new a new culture, an action packed weekend, and matched with a supportive billet family. Hockey is what brings the two towns together, but the relationships that have been formed is what has kept the tradition going for over 50 years.
