For Robert Slaney, it did not mat­ter who came call­ing from the New­found­land and Labrador Se­nior Hockey League. His choice was al­ways go­ing to be his home­town team.

The Up­per Is­land Cove na­tive was go­ing to sign with the Con­cep­tion Bay North CeeBee Stars, and with good rea­son.

“I don’t think I would’ve played any­where else, no mat­ter who called,” said Slaney.

Slaney came up through the ranks with Cee­Bees mi­nor hockey, which is based in Har­bour Grace.

“I was a kid who went to ev­ery game, sea­son tick­ets and want­ing to watch the Cee­Bees ” he said.
