A handful of Hockey Canada’s top power players took a breather from board meetings held recently in Toronto, Ont., to show off their support for the 2012 National Women’s Under-18 Championship, coming to Dawson Creek, B.C., this November.

BC Hockey president Wilf Liefke, Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson, Hockey Canada female council director Joanne Hughes and Hockey Canada board chairman Mike Bruni smiled proudly as they displayed event T-shirts for impromptu photographer Barry Reynard, who also happens to be Hockey Canada’s hockey development council director and director of community services for the City of Dawson Creek.
