New Brunswick Minor Hockey Team Scores Big!
Team to travel to Whitehorse in February for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada as winner of Scotiabank’s BIG SAVE contest
PETITCODIAC-SALISBURY, NB, Dec. 15 /CNW/ – The Petitcodiac-Salisbury Bantam “A” Flyers are preparing for the hockey journey of a lifetime as they travel to Whitehorse, Yukon, to participate in Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada on CBC, on February 12, 2011, a day that celebrates hockey’s birthday and Canada’s passion for the game.
The Flyers, made up of one girl and 17 boys, ages 13 and 14, learned yesterday, via a private broadcast from CBC’s Ron MacLean, that they are the winners of the Scotiabank BIG SAVE contest. The team will fly to Whitehorse in February with the Vancouver Giants and Kamloops Trailblazers from the Western Hockey League and have their arrival in Whitehorse filmed by CBC. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will give the Flyers the opportunity to meet NHL Alumni and lace up their skates to face-off against a local minor hockey team from the Yukon in the state-of-the-art 210,000 square foot Canada Games Centre..
