Port McNeill Minor Hockey’s annual novice tournament does not include a playoff round or trophy presentations. But Port Hardy’s Blue Thunder stormed through the seven-team tournament unbeaten last weekend to highlight an otherwise well-balanced two days of play at Chilton Regional arena.

Four Vancouver Island hockey associations were represented, with both Port McNeill and Port Hardy Minor Hockey contributing two teams. The novice division, for skaters 6-7 years old, produced the highest turnout on the North Island.

Every local team enjoyed success, with the Port McNeill Cheetahs winning two games, the Port McNeill Tigers netting two wins and a tie, and the Port Hardy Vipers getting a win and a tie.

Results and stats appear in the print edition of the Gazette.
