The league’s leading scorer, Bobby McMann (15G – 24PTS), is on the Bonnyville Pontiacs as is number five scorer, Brinson Pasichnuk (6G – 22PTS). The Pontiacs sit in third place in the Viterra AJHL North Division standings.

The Grande Prairie Storm began their 20th season in the Alberta Junior Hockey League in September. Their full schedule, as well as ticket packages are available at:

• “Thanks to the support of organizations like the Grande Prairie Storm and their fans, tremendous progress has been made in the fight against breast cancer.”
• “In fact, the breast cancer death rate has declined by 44 per cent since 1988. The sad reality, however, is this disease still takes a devastating toll. That’s why the Canadian Cancer Society is grateful for the Storm’s continued support, which will help save the lives of more mothers, daughters, sisters and wives.”
