November Winners of The Boston Pizza / Hockey Canada Atlantic Regional Centre Penalty Free Challenge Announced
December 12, 2007

Saint John, NB – The first winners of the Boston Pizza / Hockey Canada Atlantic Regional Centre Penalty Free Challenge have been announced. The winners were drawn from over 128 entries which were received by Hockey Canada’s Atlantic Regional Centre in Saint John, New Brunswick.

The Eastern Shore Mariners Atom House Boys Team (Nova Scotia) and the Carelton Flames Girls Atom Team (New Brunswick) are the teams which have been drawn from the entries received and will now be treated to a team meal at one of the Boston Pizza Restaurants located throughout Atlantic Canada.

“We would like to congratulate both of the teams on being drawn from all of the entries and being the first winners in the Boston Pizza and Hockey Canada Atlantic Regional Centre Penalty Free Challenge,” stated Trevor Murphy, Manager of Hockey Canada’s Atlantic Regional Centre. “We were very pleased that so many teams took the time to submit their game sheets as a part of this promotion and that so many teams are keeping the values of respect and fair play front and foremost when playing this great game.”

Minor Hockey Teams around Atlantic Canada will have the chance to win prizing from Boston Pizza and Hockey Canada’s Atlantic Regional Centre as part of this promotion. If a Minor Hockey Team has a penalty free game, then they are being asked to submit a copy of their game sheet to the Hockey Canada Atlantic Regional Centre office. At the end of the month, two game sheets will be drawn and the selected teams will receive a complimentary team meal at a Boston Pizza location in their province. As well, all teams that submit their game sheets will receive a special certificate from Hockey Canada’s Atlantic Regional Centre to commemorate the great accomplishment of having a penalty free game and the team’s willingness to promote fair play and respect. At the end of the season, one game sheet will be drawn from all received and the selected team will receive a special Hockey Canada Atlantic Regional Centre package and a team meal, compliments of Boston Pizza.

The next draw will take place at the end of December, so teams are encouraged to keep submitting their penalty free game sheets.
