The Cumberland Dental Care PeeWee Tier 2 Rep hockey team decided to sponsor a family in need over the Christmas holidays.  Players decided to forgo a gift exchange and put their efforts to supporting a local family of six. “These young hockey players are learning very early on that the spirit of the holidays really is about giving,” a team spokesperson said.

“Our home team captain Wyatt Fowler says, ‘It feels great to be able to help out our community.'”

The Comox Valley Minor Hockey Association team is also hosting their annual tournament at Glacier Gardens on Dec. 28-30. “Come cheer them on and have a chance to  win a raffle baskets as well as a team-signed Minnesota Wild jersey and two Vancouver Canuck tickets,” the team spokesperson added.
