This year’s Christmas Charity Hockey Classic lived up to its name as Team Gorkoff faced off against Team Price while more than 300 people watched at the Castlegar Complex.

The annual hockey game was all tied up after regulation time and overtime solved nothing, forcing the game into a shoot-out.

In a bold move by Team Price, coach Ryan Byers, switched goaltenders for the shoot-out, putting in a rested Curtis Siminoff. The move paid off as the new goalie stopped all three shots for the victory.

Dave Bond came up with the clutch tying goal and shoot out winner as Team Price defeated Team Gorkoff in an epic Christmas Classic Game.

The real winners that night were the Selkirk Saints hockey club which raised more than $1,000 at the event.

Head of Selkirk College Athletics, Kim Verigin worked hand in hand with Christmas Classic organizer Bergen Price to put on a first class event.
