Alert Bay artist aids tourney fundraiser

Aubrey Johnson carves custom hockey stick to raffle to benefit Tri-Port Hockey's hosting of Tier 3 provincial bantam championships

Aubrey Johnson of Alert Bay displays his custom carved and painted hockey stick at the Clothes Inn in Port McNeill.

A raffle to support the Bantam Tier 3 BC Hockey Championships taking place in Port Hardy during March spring break has an amazing prize up for grabs — a one-of-a-kind hockey stick carved by Aubrey Johnson of Alert Bay.

Johnson is a member of the Weka’yi First Nation, and a descendant of the Wallace, Assu, and Simeon families. He can also trace his ancestry to the Haida through his maternal grandmother.

His artistic abilities have been refined through working with Floyd Joseph and Jack James Jr.

Johnson works full time on his art in a variety of mediums.

He is well known for his finely-detailed work, such as model poles, miniature masks and intricate carved rattles, broaches and combs.

The hockey stick is on display at the Clothes Inn store in Port McNeill.

Tickets are $5 each or $20 for 5 tickets.
