Former Castlegar Rebel Luke Richardson had a hat-trick in yesterday's final as the Revelstoke Grizzlies beat the Saskatchewan champion Tri-Town Thunder 5-3 to win the Keystone Cup in Kamloops. Another former Rebel, Ben Bula, chipped in an empty-netter as well as the KIJHL took 2 of the top 3 positions in the tournament with the Kamloops Storm finishing third. Congrats to the Grizzlies on a terrific season!
The expansion Osoyoos Coyotes are starting to put together a roster. After acquiring a trio of players last week that included former Princeton and Kimberley forward Thierry Martine, the team snagged Stefan Jensen from Golden over the weekend as well. Martine had 50 points with the Posse and Dynamiters in 2009/10 while Jensen notched 20 goals for the Rockets last season. Jensen is also a former Grand Forks Border Bruin.
