According to the Mac's Midget Hockey Tournament website on Saturday, a power outage at the Max Bell Center on Friday forced the postponement of two Mac's Midget Hockey tournament games.

In boys' action, the game between the Alaska Junior Aces and the Calgary Royals was stopped as was the game between the Red Deer Sutter Fund Chiefs and the Calgary Bruins in girls' action.

The Royals and Aces were tied at two in the second period, while the Bruins were leading the Chiefs 1-0 in the first period.

The Alaska-Calgary game will be played at the Max Bell Centre #1 at 8:30 p.m. on Monday night, while the Red Deer-Calgary game will be played at Village Square at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday night.

The Aces and Royals will have to play two games on Monday. Alaska plays Prince Albert at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, while the Royals play the Valley West Hawks (out of Surrey, British Columbia) at 11:45 a.m. on Monday. The Bruins also have to play two games in one day as they play the Fraser Valley Phantom this morning at 8:00 a.m.

This is the third time this year that a power outage interrupted a sporting event. In February, the Super Bowl was delayed in New Orleans and in November a power outage cancelled an alpine skiing training session at Lake Louise.
