There were some familiar faces behind the bench of the winning team at South Delta Minor Hockey’s Pee Wee A1 Storm Winter Showcase.
The Richmond A1 Jets skated to top honours in the eight-team tournament — capping a perfect five-game run with a 4-2 win over Ridge Meadows in Sunday’s title game at the Ladner Leisure Centre.
The Jets’ head coach happens to be Steve Robinson who already spends plenty of time at the LLC as GM and head coach of the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s Delta Ice Hawks. His assistants include former Ice Hawk players Gary Dhaliwal and Riley Storey. Dhaliwal captained Delta to the PJHL championship in 2018.
As for the host Storm, they advanced to the semi-finals before bowing out to Ridge Meadows. Round-robin results included a narrow 3-2 defeat to Richmond on Saturday afternoon. South Delta also skated to a 9-2 win over Tri-Cities.
