Re: Tounry Help
If you want to go with a traditional tournament there isn't a whole lot to do other than make sure the reffing is good and the games run on time. Try and give each team a decent number of games and just keep everything running smoothly. For an adult tournament most people are there to play hockey and won't care/won't participate in extra stuff you try and do. That being said I also love a good skills challenge, and not too many tournaments do it, but if you have the rink time it might be cool to add.
If you aren't stuck on doing a traditional full team tournament, Ironman tournaments are a great alternative (we do a couple per year here in Cincinnati/Columbus usually). Basically each team will only have 4 skaters and a goalie. You go out and play 12 minute games. In this setup each skater usually gets more time on the rink and the setup tends to encourage a lot of fun play.
