Bears seek CIS hockey crown

Vernon’s James Dobrowolski and the Alberta Golden Bears will be the sixth seeds for the CIS university men’s hockey championships

Vernon’s James Dobrowolski and the defending champion Alberta Golden Bears will be the sixth seeds for the CIS university men’s hockey championships which start Thursday in Halifax.

The Bears fell 2-0 in the best-of-three Canada West final to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, who won by scores of 4-0 and 3-2.

Dobrowolski opened the scoring in Game 2 for Alberta, set up by Salmon Arm’s Lucas Nickles, but Saskatchewan scored three times in the third, including twice in 15 seconds.

The Bears will open up the nationals against the third-seed St. Francis Xavier X-Men.
