Cocktails 6:00 PM Dinner 7:00 PM
St Vital Victoria's Junior Hockey Club is a community
based team with over 40 years as a member on the MMJHL. We have a proud
tradition of providing elite hockey players ages from 17-21 to continue playing
hockey at a high level while combining university education, post-secondary
education or beginning their working careers.
Funds raised from this event will help offset the
rising cost of running a Junior Hockey Program which includes ice rentals,
equipment costs, league fees and insurance.
The St Vital Victoria's are proud to introduce our
Master of Ceremonies
of Winnipeg's #1 radio rock morning show on Power 97. Phil is a lifelong
Winnipegger who has been playing hockey since he was 5-years-old. He realized
he wasn't going anywhere in hockey when he was cut from the Oxford Heights
9A team. Phil has two young sons and says he has every intention of
forcing them to play hockey whether they like it or not.
High energy and extremely funny
Great guy and amazing story teller
has become one of the brightest voices to hit the Canadian comedy scene. With
unmistakable charm, wit and trade mark act outs, Rob delivers a must see
performance that has helped him to generate an impressive comedic resume that
includes winning the prestigious 28th Annual San Francisco International Comedy
Competition. Rob has also appeared as a regular on the MTV series Punk'd,
showcased at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, and recently had
his one hour "Comedy Now" special air on the Comedy Channel.
Chris Nilan was a pugnacious and hard-working
right-winger who played nearly 700 NHL games for three different teams. He was
an enforcer, a tireless worker in the trenches, and an able scorer.
The native of the Boston suburb of West
Roxbury played two years at Northeastern University. He was selected 231st
overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1978 and was considered a longshot to make
the league. In 1979-80 he made his presence felt with the Nova Scotia Voyageurs
of the AHL by scoring 15 goals and registering 304 minutes in penalties in only
49 games. The Habs called up him for the last 15 games of the season and
dressed for five playoff contests.
Nilan was a regular on the Habs for seven and
a half years beginning in 1980-81. He scored a career high 21 goals in 1984-85
playing chiefly on a line with Guy Carbonneau and Bob Gainey. The next season,
the fiesty winger scored 19 goals and was a physical force when the Canadiens
won the Stanley Cup.
Nilan's reputation was such that he was
placed on the Americans' 1987 Canada Cup roster. By January 1988 his
deteriorating relationship with coach Jean Perron led to a trade with the New
York Rangers. The fiery winger battled injuries during his two full seasons on
Nilan was traded to the Boston Bruins in June
1990 for Greg Johnston and helped his new team reach the semi-finals in 1991.
Midway through the 1992 season, Nilan got his wish to finish his career in
Montreal when his original club picked him up on waivers. He retired in 1992
with over 200 points and 3,000 minutes in penalties.
