Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- One of the largest hockey tournaments in the U.S. is underway.

Teams from all over, including Canada and almost 40 states across America are here in the Valley. The 29th annual Squirts International Tournament brings in thousands of families a year for the competition, filling hotels and bringing extra revenue in for the Fargo-Moorhead area.

The Fargo Youth Hockey Association says if they could get bigger, they would.

Matt Magness with the Fargo Youth Hockey Association, says, "we have upwards of 175 that try to get into this tournament. We only accept 128. So, we are bound by ice capacity and other things at the moment in order to make it bigger. We'd love to but still, 128 is a huge event."
