In 2018 the tournament took on a new identity as the ASHL National Championships, with a tournament-high 98 teams descending on Calgary, Alta. in the event’s largest field to-date. The 2020 edition of the tournament sees the Nationals head East to Toronto, where more than 100 teams are expected to make up the largest field yet.
