Bergen Price celebrates the big win with special guest referee

The second annual Christmas Charity Hockey Classic took place on Dec. 21 at the Castlegar Community Complex and from all accounts a good time was had by all and not a single groin was pulled.

“The second annual Christmas Classic was a great success,” said organizer Bergen Price. “Over 100 people came out to the complex to watch Team Price battle Team Fellman for ‘Stanley’s Cup’. The event raised $300 for Castlegar Minor Hockey and over 100 non-perishable items for the Food Bank.”

Local Celebrities Pat Price (former NHLer) and Shawn “Hook” Hlookoff (recording artist) took part as referee and player in the event.

After Hook dazzled the audience with his rendition of Oh Canada, the puck was dropped and Team Price and Team Fellman squared off to decide this year’s champion. The game was all Team Price in the first as they jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead with markers from Adam Lord, Tyler Gienger, and Dylan Simpson. Not to be outdone, Team Fellman stormed back to tie it at 3’s. The game was back and forth from there as the two teams were tied going into the third, where Team Price pulled away with a late hat-trick by Lindsay Walker, who had just come out of retirement to participate in the event.

 

“The Christmas Classic aspires to grow each year and become a great ‘fun’ draising event for the community,” said Bergen Price. “I want to thank all who attended and played.  I also want to send a special thanks to the Element for providing the shuttle bus for safe rides, Mountain FM for promoting the event, and Castlegar News for covering the Classic.”
