Cam Kerr wins Dave Creamer Memorial Bursary Fund Hockey Pool


Be it men’s or women’s, Cam Kerr knows his hockey.

That knowledge helped the North Vancouver resident take top spot in the inaugural Dave Creamer Memorial Bursary Fund Hockey Pool, which wrapped up April 10 with the conclusion of the NHL regular season.

Kerr is the head scout for Canada’s national women’s team, and his 1,078 points topped a 250-entry field that featured a number of ties for the $2,000 in prize money.

Kerry collected $1,000 for the win while second place with 1,047 points was a tie between Dave Woodley and Mike Miller. The $500 for second and $200 for third were added together, with Woodley and Miller pocketing $350 each.

James Jerczynski finished just out of the big money in fourth place with 1,046 points while Lee McGeorge was right behind in fifth with 1,045.

The pool also awarded $100 for the 50th, 100th and 150th place finishers. Baker’n Calls finished 50th, 100th was a tie with Andrew McKenzie and Michele Genge earning $50 each, and 150th was another tie, with Nick Malo an Kat Creamer both $50 richer for their player prognostications.

“I would like to thank all the participants for contributing to the bursary fund and I hope everyone had a bit of fun with the pool,” said Pati Creamer, who organized the pool in memory of her husband. “I look forward to running it again next season,” she added.

The pool will create a $2,500 bursary to be awarded to a Highland Secondary School student.
