Midget hockey returns to Princeton

A Midget hockey team is being put together in Princeton.

A Midget hockey team has been formed again in Princeton. Players in grades 10 to 12 are welcomed back along with second year bantams who want to dip their toes in to practice for next year’s team and/or midgets wanting to practice for rep. Former Princeton Posse player Spencer Brooks is returning to Princeton to coach the Midget team. Princeton has been without a Midget team for three years, with players having to travel out of town to play on other teams. Six players who have been traveling are quite excited to be able to practice and play at home. “The boys want to play here,” said team manager Dean Johnston, “it is so hard to travel.” Midget hockey parents have come together to assist their kids in raising funds to help pay for team expenses. With a little help from the Princeton Volunteer Fire Department and the place provided by Cooper’s Foods, the site of the old Overwaitea became a local car wash in downtown Princeton this past Saturday. Team members, siblings and parents spent a few hours washing cars and trucks by hand. The team is currently on the lookout for assistant coaches and sponsors. If you can help with either or are looking for more information, please call Dean Johnston at 250-295-2043 or Linda Thompson at 250-295-6200. The team wishes to extend their thanks to their parents, the Princeton Volunteer Fire Department (Carson Ziesk), Cooper’s Foods and to Posse Coach Dale “Duner” Hladun for getting them off to a great start.
