The 2015 VIJHL All Star Classic goes Sunday

The game will be preceded by a banquet at the Florence Filberg Centre. Doors open at 10 a.m. with banquet at 11 a.m. Everyone is welcome.

Five Glacier Kings and one former Yeti have been named to Team North. Goalie Blake Pearson, who the Icemen sent to the Westshore Wolves on trade deadline day (Jan. 10), is still eligible to play for Team North, according to VIJHL president Myles Parsons.
