Bell, Charlie, Jones earn Eagles MVP awards

North Island Eagles host hockey awards night to round out season.

PORT McNEILL—A pair of high-scoring forwards and a rookie goalie were honoured with MVP trophies last Wednesday as the North Island Eagles Hockey program hosted its annual awards night and general meeting at Sunset Elementary School.

Chad Bell claimed MVP honours for the midget club, which came within a single playoff win of qualifying for a berth in this year’s Tier 3 provincial championships.

David Charlie Jr., who had a breakout season with the Eagles peewees, won that club’s MVP Eagle Trophy.

And Kayden Jones, who went from novice rec to play every game as the lone goalie for the atom development squad, earned the atoms’ MVP.

Due to low turnout at tryouts last fall, no bantam team was fielded by the Eagles during the past season, but the association hopes to field teams at all four levels in the 2013-14 season.

In addition to the MVP awards, Eagle trophies were awarded at each age level to most sportsmanlike and most improved players. The club also presented medallions, sponsored by Esso, to the most improved, most dedicated and most sportsmanlike player in each division.

Vadim Stavrakov was returned to the club president post by acclimation during the officers election that kicked off the night, and he will be joined by returning executive members Carolyn Shade (secretary), Lito Pineda (treasurer), Tanya Kellar (registrar), Leighann Ruel (equipment manager), referee assigner (John Bramham) and Tammy Bono, Sonya Strang and Ruel (directors).

Carrie Harilstad is the only newcomer, as a director, but the association is asking for parents or other volunteers to step up and help fill the roles of vice-president, head coach and ice scheduler, which were left vacant when no nominations were advanced last week.

The club recognized the contributions of Mike Bell, who stepped down after serving as both head coach and coach of the midget team; and of Kim Dutcyvich, who served as ice scheduler.

Notice was also given to the efforts of Pineda, who served despite having no child in the Eagles program during the past year, and Shade, who served as secretary of both the Eagles and Port McNeill Minor associations.
