More than 200 teams competed this weekend in the Buffalo Sabres annual Street HockeyFest, sponsored by HSBC Bank.

For the ninth straight year, teams battled in the three-on-three tournament in downtown Buffalo with a crowd of approximately 4,000 people in attendance. Due to high demand, HockeyFest was spread out over a period of two days for the first time.

Other festivities during the tournament included a blood drive, Sabres merchandise sale and various kids activities. Individual game tickets for both preseason home games and the first 10 home games of the 2010-11 Buffalo Sabres were also on sale.

The tournament has seen a massive growth since its inception in 2001. With only 32 teams competing that year, Street HockeyFest has expanded to include nearly 1,000 children ranging from 5 years old to 17 years old.

The competition, featuring six divisions broken down by age groups, ranged from Microns to Midgets as well as two girls divisions.

Below is a listing of each division and the champions:
