The Fort Myers-based Florida Ice will play at 9:30 pm on Friday March 1; and at 5:30 and 8 pm on Saturday March 2nd. The third place game will be played at 8:00 am on Sunday, March 3, with the tournament championship at 9:30 am. After the championship game, a free introduction to disabled hockey clinic will be held.
