WESTFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

For the next week, hockey players from across New England will be making their way to the Amelia Park Ice Arena.

They are in town to take part in the third annual Kevin Major Memorial Hockey Tournament.

Major was a Western Mass athlete who died of a heart disorder in 2011.

The field has more than doubled since the inaugural event three years ago and Major's father said it is something his son would be proud of.

The official opening ceremony for the tournament will be next Saturday at noon.

Sunday's games were necessary to make sure the rest of the schedule goes off without a hitch.
