McNeill puts on novice hockey show

Clubs from Port McNeill, Port Hardy, Port Alice and Campbell River put on a show for fans.

PORT McNEILL—It was a small tournament with big entertainment value.

The annual Port McNeill Minor Hockey Association novice tournament drew just five teams to Chilton Regional Arena last weekend. But the clubs from Port McNeill, Port Hardy, Port Alice and Campbell River put on a show for fans while generating much-needed assistance to the association through popular raffle table prizes, 50/50 draws and a puck toss.

Players were also treated to the classic family hockey movie, The Mighty Ducks, Saturday night at Gate House Community Theatre.

The novice-level tourney did not include a playoff round; each team played the other four in a round-robin formate. But the Port McNeill Snipers, one of two teams fielded by the local club, ran the table with four impressive wins to take home unofficial top honours.

Port Alice skater Tyler Roper had a notable tourney, scoring 27 goals in three games. He scored all nine of his team’s goals in a 13-9 loss to the Port McNeill Legends and a 16-9 loss to Campbell River, and added another nine goals in a 10-5 win over Port Hardy. In his team’s other game he played goalie.
