The Saratoga Frozen Springs Pond Hockey Tournament returns February 12-14 at the Saratoga State Park! Get in the spirit by reading up on some “Canadianisms” you can use while watching—or playing—the game.

1. “Kerfuffle” – means commotion

“What’s the kerfuffle here at the Saratoga State Park? Oh yea, it’s POND HOCKEY!”

2. “Two-four” – means 24-rack of beer

“I’m ready for a two-four after that goal.”

3. Arse – means hind quarters

“How’d you get that bruise?” “I fell on my arse yesterday at pond hockey!”

4. Chesterfield – means couch

“I can’t wait to warm up and watch Netflix on the chesterfield later.”

5. Toque – means wool winter hat

“I’m going to stay so warm for pond hockey because I’m bringing my best toque.”

6. Backbacon – means Canadian bacon

“I asked for extra backbacon with my breakfast this morning, so I’m ready to skate all day long!”

7. Double-Double –  means coffee with two creams and two sugars

“A double-double from Tim Horton’s would really hit the spot right now.”

8. Queue – means line of people

“The queue for coffee is so long. I just want my double-double!”

9. Chinook – means warm breeze in the winter

“What a perfect winter day for pond hockey– not too cold with the occasional chinook.”

10. Give’r – means to give something your all

“We’re gonna give’r this year at the Saratoga Frozen Springs Classic. Bring it!”

We hope you have a skookem time at this year’s Frozen Classic!
