The Flin Flon Bombers held their Annual General meeting last night at the green room at the Flin Flon Community Hall.

 

Mike Reagan gave a coach's report and said the future looks bright only losing 5 players from last year's team.19 players are eligible to come back including all 8 defensemen, both goalies and 9 forwards.

 

Over 100 kids are expected at this weekend's  spring camp in Saskatoon, and Reagan said they will sign between 6 to 8 kids from this group.

 

Reagan also commented that he will be on some recruiting trips which will take him into the States in July.

 

Bomber President Hank Kozar also addressed the crowd and thanked all the volunteers, sponsors, fellow board members, fans and bus drivers for their continued dedication over the past season.

 

Kozar called it the most memorable season for him and his 20 years of service to the club, and was very happy with the excitement this year's playoff run was for the whole community.

 

Dave Brooks the Secretary- Treasurer reported that with this year's playoff success, they were able to trim over $90,000.00 off their overall debt. Things are really moving in the right direction with only one more payment remaining on their bus and a couple of other minor things they still have to pay off.

 

The Bombers were able to generate a lot of money off marketing and both Brooks and Kozar thanked Tanya Benoit and her crew for their hard work and perseverance.

 

Here is this year's board of directors after last night's meeting.

 

President- Hank Kozar

 

Vice President- Travis Rideout  (new)

 

Secretary Treasurer- David Brooks

 

Directors-2 years

Eleven new members have been selected to receive the province's highest honour, the Order of Manitoba including former NHL superstar and former Flin Flon Bomber  "the Riverton Rifle" Reggie Leach.

 

Lt. Gov Janice Filmon,  chancellor of the order, made the announcement today.

 

Reggie played for the Flin Flon Bombers between 1966 and 1970 and scored an incredible 255 goals in 4 years before being drafted by the Boston Bruins in the first round in 1970.

 

He was later traded to the California Golden Seals in 1972 before winding up with Philadelphia in 1974 where he won a Stanley Cup later that season. Reggie played 13 years in the NHL and was named to the All- Star team in 1976 and 1980 and played for team Canada in the 1976 Canada Cup.

 

He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the Most Valuable Player in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 1976 when he scored 19 goals in 16 games which stands as a record today, tied with Edmonton's Jari Kurri who did it in 19 games.

 

Reggie spends a lot of his time these days travelling to remote communities to offer hockey schools and inspire young people , through his own life experiences by encouraging healthy life choices.

 

He has also written a book " The Riverton Rifle- My Story " about his life around the great game of hockey and is a must read with some real tear jerking stories.
