Atom A

The Nelson Atom A attended a Tier 1/2 Atom Development tournament in Salmon Arm December 5-7th. The team captured third place out of the ten teams that attended which included, Cloverdale, Coquitlam, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, Dawson Creek, Prince George, and host Salmon Arm. The team beat Salmon Arm 7-2 to win third place in the Okanagan tournament. The team was led by standout goaltender Ben Haydu and snipers Seamus Boyd and Bryce Sookro. Offensive contributions from Rhett Hamilton, Koby Upper, Drake Proctor, Dylan Watts, Devan Andrusak and Ethan Bennett helped solidify the wins. Despite their offensive prowess, the team was well stacked with defenders that were relentless in their duties including Jamie Popoff-Hnatiuk, Simon Forrester, and Mason Ouchi. Supporting cast of Alexander Andersen, Levi Reynolds, Dylan Moynes, and Sam Orasuk were also instrumental in the team’s success. Next action, the Atom A team will be attending a tournament in Kimberley in the New Year.
