Con­grat­u­la­tions to Cape Bre­ton hockey team

Cape Breton Post - - Editorial -

To all the fans and fol­low­ers of the Cape Bre­ton West Is­lan­ders ma­jor midget hockey team, we, the com­mit­tee mem­bers of the 2017 TELUS Cup just com­pleted in Prince Ge­orge B.C., would like to ex­tend our sin­cere con­grat­u­la­tions on your win.

As co-chair of the event I watched ev­ery game as well as the in­di­vid­ual play­ers, coaches, staff and your fol­low­ers’ ac­tions, emo­tions and con­duct while at the event or around town.

You guys were the best!

As play­ers and bench staff, you were the friendli­est and most ap­pre­ci­ated of the tour­na­ment.

As far as your friends, fam­ily and sup­port­ers in the stands went – we loved you all.

I have never had the plea­sure of giv­ing cham­pi­onship hats to a more emo­tional bench. You brought tears of joy to our eyes as well as cer­tainly to yours.

The play­ers will hold a spe­cial bond for­ever whether they go on with their hockey ca­reers or start a new phase of their lives.

They are the proud pos­ses­sors of the first ever TELUS Cup cham­pi­onship rings made here in Prince Ge­orge by Michaels Jewel­ers, a lo­cal cus­tom de­signer. Wear them with pride!

We trust you have left Prince Ge­orge with life-long mem­o­ries and, per­haps, new friends or the de­sire to visit us again some­day.

Again, con­grat­u­la­tions to all in­volved. John Mor­ri­son
