The Flin Flon Bombers held their annual AGM Wednesday night at the Green room at the Flin Flon Community Hall.

 

Mike Reagan had his coach's report  and talked about the season from his perspective. He mentioned that the team really had a hard time replacing both Tanner Lishchynsky and Dustin Perrilat who both jumped to the WHL early in the season.

 

Reagan also said he expects 13 out of 16 players who are eligible to return to be back with the club for the beginning of the season. He will trade the other 3 who will not be returning.

 

Over 100 kids are expected in Saskatoon, the final weekend of May, making this the biggest spring camp the Bombers have ever held.

 

Reagan says he is excited about the challenge of putting together another competitive team  for the up coming season and the league draft set to take place in Nipawin June the 4th.

 

Hank Kozar spoke and thanked his fellow board members and all the volunteers who continue to give countless hours to  the hockey club year after year.

Dave Brooks presented the financial situation and reported that there was $50.000.00 less revenue than  the year before. Saying that the team did make a profit of $20.000.00 , but still have an accumaled overall debt of $114,000.00.

July the 25th will be a special day for former Flin Flonner Al Hamilton , who will be inducted into the Alberta Hockey Hall Of Fame in Canmore.

 

Hamilton already a member of the Manitoba Hockey Hall Of Fame remembers his time in Flin Flon fondly.

 

Before heading to Edmonton to play junior with the Oil Kings, Hamilton played his entire minor hockey in Flin Flon, winning numerous Provincial Juvenile and Midget Championships under the guidance of Bill Maluta.

 

Hamilton says the calibre of hockey in Flin Flon helped prepare him for a solid Professional career.  In 1962-63 Hamilton did play a few games with his hometown Bombers as a 15 year old. He was traded to the Oil Kings the next season, and reached the Memorial Cup Final 3 years in a row ,  winning it all in 1966.

 

He made his NHL debut the same year with the New York Rangers, and eventually cracked their lineup in 1969, playing 59 games. In between, he was an all-star in the Central Hockey League with Omaha, and spent two seasons with Buffalo in the American Hockey League. In the 1970 NHL expansion draft, Hamilton was the third selection of the Buffalo Sabres.

 

In 1972, Hamilton returned to his western roots, as a member of the Alberta Oilers (they would become Edmonton the next year), one of the inaugural franchises in the newly-formed WHA. He was team captain for four seasons, and named an all-star in 1974 and 1978. In 1974, Hamilton was selected to the WHA’s Team Canada Summit Series squad, playing in three games and recording an assist against Russia.

 

Hamilton’s playing career ended in 1980, as he returned to the NHL, playing 31 games with the Edmonton Oilers. Upon his retirement, his number ‘3’ jersey was the first to be retired by the franchise, and Hamilton remains the only Oiler not part of the 1980s Stanley Cup teams to have his jersey retired.

 

Statistically, in a combined 746 regular season and playoff games in the WHA and NHL, Hamilton accumulated 68 goals and 347 assists.

Twenty-year-old PONTIAC forward Dillan McCOMBIE has committed to the University of Regina COUGARS of the Canada West (CIS) for the 2015/16 season.

 

Raised in Creighton, Saskatchewan, McCOMBIE came to the Bonnyville PONTIACS via the Flin Flon BOMBERS prior to this year and had a career season. McCOMBIE scored 78 points in 71 games, scored his 100th Junior career goal and finished fifth (regular season) and sixth (play-offs) in the Alberta Junior Hockey League scoring race. He was also the team's most valuable player. Dillan was named the Alberta Junior Hockey League's Player of the Month in December 2014

 

"On behalf of the Bonnyville PONTIACS, our community, fans and volunteers I want to wish Dillan and his family the very best success in his academic, hockey and life endeavors. As obvious as Dillan's hockey abilities are, he is even a better person. He plays the game with an exceptional compete level and his tremendous vision makes him a dangerous offensive player and one of the most offensively creative players in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. He made a tremendously positive impact as a Bonnyville PONTIAC both on and off the ice," says Head Coach and General Manager Rick SWAN.

 

"I am extremely thankful for all the support that the Bonnyville PONTIACS organization and my billet family, Erin and Jesse VADAZ, provided me this year. The Bonnyville PONTIACS are a first class organization who treat their players like professionals and make them feel a part of something special. I am so lucky and glad that I was able to finish my Junior hockey career of in such a great place. They are an organization and a team moving in the right direction," says McCOMBIE. "I wish that I had one more year here but I am also looking forward to attending the University of Regina to obtain a quality education and play for the COUGARS."

 

The community of Bonnyville, it's volunteers, it's sponsors and it's fans wish Dillan all the very best success as he moves on to the University of Regina.

 

Dillan McCOMBIE becomes the 17th PONTIAC in the past two seasons to continue his hockey to play at the College level.
