The 2020 Prospects from the PJHL and VIJHL put on a show on January 12, now the All-stars will take to the ice on Sunday (January 26) at the Ladner Leisure Centre across the Georgia Strait for the first-ever PJHL/VIJHL All-star Game.
The Delta Ice Hawks are hosting most of the best players from the Pacific Junior Hockey and our league.
Brody Coulter of the Victoria Cougars is the VIJHL Head Coach and he’s thrilled to be behind the bench, “If the Prospects Game is any indication, this year’s format should make for a very exciting game. The league is sending over a very talented group.” Coulter goes on to say, “A lot of these guys are bitter rivals for 6 months of the year so it’s going to be fun to watch them compete together.”
The VI Bench Boss will be joined by his Cougars’ coaching crew, “As a staff, it’s an honour to be awarded this game. We made it one of our goals at the start of the season and with the parody in the VIJHL, we are obviously thrilled to be in this position.”
Here is the roster for the VIJHL All-stars:
Josh Lingard (F), Riley Braun (F), Tanner Wort (F), Thomas Spink (D) and Skylar Diamond-Burchuk (D) from the Peninsula Panthers;
Dawson Heathcote (F), Landon Dziadyk (F) and James Brendeland (G) from the Oceanside Generals;
