For the first time since 2000, the Creston Valley Minor Hockey Association’s Atom B Bruins have brought home the banner, after winning the East Kootenay Minor Hockey Association championships on Feb. 28.
The Bruins closed out the regular season in first place, having lost only one game to the Windermere Valley Rockies. They then went on to win every game in the championships. Narrowly beating Kimberley in the round-robin, they faced off against the Rockies in the final. Both teams played hard but the Bruins came out with a 5-0 victory over the Rockies.
