The Nelson Atom A hockey squad  attended a Tier 1/2 Atom development tournament in Salmon Arm from December 5 to 7.

The team captured third place out of the 10 teams that attended which included, Cloverdale, Coquitlam, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, Dawson Creek, Prince George, and host Salmon Arm.

The team beat Salmon Arm 7-2 to win third place in the event.

The team was led by standout goaltender Ben Haydu and snipers Seamus Boyd and Bryce Sookro.

Offensive contributions from Rhett Hamilton, Koby Upper, Drake Proctor, Dylan Watts, Devan Andrusak and Ethan Bennett helped solidify the wins.

Despite their offensive prowess, the team was well stacked with defenders that were relentless in their duties including Jamie Popoff-Hnatiuk, Simon Forrester, and Mason Ouchi. Supporting cast of Alexander Andersen, Levi Reynolds, Dylan Moynes, and Sam Orasuk were also instrumental in the team’s success.

Next action for the local Atom A team will take place in the New Year  when they will attend a tournament in Kimberley.
