The Alexandria Glens junior ‘B’ hockey club bid adieu to Derick Viau, who has served the club in various capacities, including most recently as trainer and equipment manager. His decade of volunteering with the team came to an end recently, when the Glens’ season wrapped up, and now Viau is off to British Columbia for a new chapter in his life. As he posted on Twitter, “My luggage is packed, hockey bag is ready, and hockey sticks are taped together. I’m ready for you, British Columbia #Nanaimo.” On Viau’s contribution to the Glens, club president Yves Poirier describes him as “extremely dedicated, arriving hours before a game to make sure the shirts are hung in our dressing room under the players’ name tags, which Derick designed, printed, and attached to the walls of the room.” Poirier goes on to add that Viau was diligent in preparing sliced oranges and sports drinks for the players. “After the game, he’s the last one to leave, after he picks up after the players and puts all his trainer gear away ... and takes the jerseys to the cleaners between games.” Aside from making sure he was prepared as trainer, Viau ensured coaches had what they needed, and he set up the computer for the time keepers. He also was the club’s go-to guy for any IT issues. Away from the rink, Viau was very involved in promoting the team, connecting with alumni, and developing an online history of the Glens. Before departing, Viau expressed his thanks to the hockey club and wished the team well next season.
