Evan's CHBA Hockey

Cole Harbour Bel Ayr Minor Hockey Association
"Home of the Wings"


Evan and I have been involved with Cole Harbour Bel Ayr Minor Hockey. I was the webmaster for the association and manager of Evan's team.  Evan has finished his third year of Midget and is no longer playing. For the last three years Evan played  for CHBA Midget  "Blues".  Last year (2003/04) he played for CHBA Midget "Blues", winners of The Joe Lamontagne tournament and Metro Minor Champions  and this year (04/05) the "Blues did it again winning both the "Joe" and the Metro Minor Championship again with the same great coach, John Moulins.
