The Ike Lee Tournament is a memorial tournament played in honor of O. Ivan “Ike” Lee. Ike was a member of the Barre Blackhawks men’s hockey team from 1938 to 1942 and he spent a great deal of time as a volunteer timekeeper at the BOR arena for several leagues. He is fondly remembered for fixing broken sticks and consoling and motivating many young hockey players. He was frequently seen at the North Barre Rink helping a child struggling with tying their skates, teaching another child stick handling skills, or simply helping a youngster remain upright on their skates.

Ike Lee, who passed in 1989, was “sadly missed and fondly remembered” by generations of local hockey players.
