Opening Ceremonies, Celebrity Kick-off Game
A new trophy was claimed by the Lakeland team in a 11-10 victory over the GOAT in 2013.

Trucker Tom, a devoted GOAT listener, provided the trophy that was presented to Peter "the Kilt" Walsh of the Lakeland College team that was bolstered by an alumnus and a few students.

As is tradition, the GOAT team was piped into the rink and under the crossed sticks of the Lakeland team.

Drew Dalby wore a helmet cam. To date, no video has been posted.
