Congratulations to our Burnaby boys, Thomas Vela and Marcus Klarich, on their bronze win with Midget Team BC. Way to go boys!


Bellie Bowl Gold

Our Burnaby Lakers Novice C team won GOLD at the Bellie Bowl tournament in New West.

Players (and parents, maybe even more…) were pumped with gloves and sticks flying in the air as the game ended with a come from behind 5-4 victory over a really good Ridge Meadow team. The boys never gave up after being behind 4-1 in the second and 4-2 going in the 3rd before dominating the last period and scoring the winning goal with under 1 minute to go.

For most of these kids it was their first “earned” medal. They had a short bench, 9-11 runners for each of the 5 games.  Great team win and awesome tournament!

Awards night (Cancelled)

for PeeWee, Bantam and Midget boy and girl teams!

The BMLC 2018 Award night which was to be held on Thursday August 23, 2018 at the Nikkei Centre in Burnaby has been cancelled due to low ticket sales. Refunds will be given to those who already purchased tickets.

Graduating midgets will be recognized and awards given out at our club AGM end of October. The rest of the awards will be given out at Deschner Days 2019. Dates to come for both.
