For­mer CeeBees cap­tain re­turns to Har­bour Grace

The S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium in Har­bour Grace looks much like it did the last time Matthew Thomey played a se­nior hockey league game in the ven­er­a­ble arena.

The colour of the bleachers are the same, the stick sports fig­ures left over from the 1992 New­found­land and Labrador Sum­mer Games are still on the wall and the re­tired jer­seys of Alex and Ge­orge Faulkner still hang from the rafter.

Save for the 2012- 13 Herder Me­mo­rial Tro­phy ban­ner hang­ing at cen­tre ice, it’s iden­ti­cal.

How­ever, there is one thing that has changed. Thomey, a for­mer CeeBee Stars’ cap­tain, is us­ing his ex­cep­tional hockey tal­ents to help the Western Roy­als.

On Jan. 18, Thomey and the Roy­als played their first game in Har­bour Grace this sea­son.

The head­line reads: “CeeBees hold on to beat Western Roy­als.” But for most CeeBee fans, it was just as well it read: “The re­turn of Matthew Thomey.”
