Reece Hunt wins bronze at Canada Winter Games

Hunt has won bronze three straight years at the event

Nelson’s Reece Hunt has won a bronze medal with Team B.C. at the Canada Winter Games.

Hunt and the provincial under-18 girls hockey team defeated Ontario 5-4 on Saturday in Red Deer, Alta., to secure third place. It’s the third straight year Hunt, 17, has won bronze at the Games.

B.C. went undefeated through three preliminary round games before defeating New Brunswick in the quarter-finals. That set up a semifinal game against Alberta, which B.C. lost in overtime.

Nelson boxer Brayden Hellekson also won bronze this year at the Games.

Hunt’s brother Dryden, meanwhile, was recalled by the Florida Panthers from their AHL affiliate club on Feb. 25. The 23-year-old has five assists in 29 career NHL games.
