Helijet squeaks out win over RE/MAX atoms

Both Prince Rupert teams in the tournament had good showings, and were unfortunate not to advance to the bronze or gold medal games

The Jim Ciccone Civic Centre played host to the Annual Atom Minor Hockey Tournament, with teams from Prince Rupert, Smithers, Hazelton, Terrace and Kitimat joining in on the fun.

Both Prince Rupert teams in the tournament had good showings, and were unfortunate not to advance to the bronze or gold medal game.

Prince Rupert RE/MAX, played Prince Rupert Helijet in the 5th vs 6th final, with Helijet squeaking out the win, 2-1.

Goals were scored by Aarman Brar and Josh Leighton for PR Helijet, with Jorian Mack adding the goal from PR RE/MAX.

The game featured some great individual efforts from all of the players, and showcased some really good transition play.

One could see the coaches have focused on this in practice, as the break-outs out of the zone were very fluid for kids this age.

With so much hockey played over the weekend, the games were two periods and 20-minutes long.

“The kids are learning their positions better, and getting them playing more hockey, you can see improvement from each individual throughout the tournament,” said PR Helijet assistant coach Mike Ikari about his players’ development.
