LAKE OZARK, Mo. – A team of Affton Americans 8U hockey players took a play out of the Blues book and showed up to their tournament in the Lake of the Ozarks looking like they were headed to spring break.

The hockey club posted a video on Facebook of the boys leaving their hotel in the Lake of the Ozarks Saturday wearing swim trunks, flip flops, and sunglasses. This is a stunt the Blues players pulled when they arrived at the Winter Classic in Minneapolis.

The boys were playing in the Old Kinderhook Pond Hockey Tournament this past weekend. The high temperatures Saturday in the Lake of Ozarks were in the 40s. When the Blues played outdoors in Minneapolis, it was as cold as -10 degrees.
