Glacier Kings captain cited for community leadership

Comox Valley Glacier Kings’ captain Nicholas Tupper was recognized Sunday afternoon at the VIJHL awards with the Bob Saunders Community Leadership Award.

In a letter recommending Tupper for the award, Glacier Kings’ head coach Bill Rotheisler spoke about what Tupper brings to the team. “I have had captains who are good motivators, captains who led more by example on the ice, captains who led by example off the ice, captains who are an important part of the community, captains the coaching staff look up to and captains the players look up to. I have never, until this year, been blessed with a captain who possesses all these characteristics at the same time,” Rotheisler wrote

“Being involved in the community is a part of being on this team,” Tupper said. “It’s important to give back to the community that supports us and comes out to our games.  We have a big year, hosting the Cyclone Taylor Cup, and I am proud to be a part of the Comox Valley and the whole team is working hard to win the Cup at home,” said Tupper when asked about the honour.
