OHL grad Aaron Berisha wins Gold at Maccabiah Games

 

Ontario Hockey League graduate Aaron Berisha has added another championship to his hockey resume winning gold with Canada at the 2017 Maccabiah Games.

Canada defeated the United States 7-2 in Saturday’s final bringing a close to the 20th Maccabiah in Jerusalem.

Teams from Russia, Germany, and Israel also competed in the open age category.

The Maccabiah Games, a prominent international sports competition held every 4 years in Israel, is one of the top three gatherings of athletes in the world just behind the Olympics and the University Games.

Maccabi Canada brings young Jews to Israel to compete, and expose them to a rich Jewish culture, proud traditions and give them an Israel educational experience for a lifetime.

Berisha played five OHL seasons between Belleville and London hoisting the Robertson Cup and Memorial Cup in 2016 bringing an end to his overage year.
