Slaney a Ceebee
Former pro Robert Slaney to suit up for team he idolized in his youth
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.
