Oldtimers bring new life to tournament

Men's, women's teams take part in regional tourney

The Prince Rupert Oldtimers’ Carlo Paolinelli Memorial Hockey Tournament was back this weekend at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

Each year’s tournament brings teams in from all over the northwest, making it a must-watch for adult amateur hockey enthusiasts.

Picking up this year’s title was the Prince Rupert A & G Silverbacks, with a record of 3-1.

In this year’s tourney, there were seven women’s teams, with two from Rupert, five aged 35+ men’s teams with one from Rupert and four aged 50+ teams, with one from Rupert.

LaGondala, Firstimers All-Stars, Raiders Black, Terrace/Kitimat, Timbermen, Puckaneers, A & G Silverbacks, United Rentals, Mr. Mikes, Kitimat 50, Smithers Prowlers, Terrace Midgets, Raiders White, Smithers Warriors, Burns Lake and Underdogs made up this year’s crop of visitors who filled the Jim..

It was well attended and according to John Vatcher, tournament organizer, the party put on by the tournament Saturday night, with live music from Triple Bypass, was talked about as the party of the year in Prince Rupert. No doubt on Sunday there was a slower place to the games.

“A big thanks goes out to Sheri Pringle, Sheri McDonald and the entire Prince Rupert Raiders women’s hockey team for all their help, making this tournament a huge success,” said Vatcher.
