Pistons Recognized at Sport Manitoba’s Night of Champions

For their success over the past year, the Steinbach Pistons were recognized amongst the very best in Manitoba at the 2019 Sport Manitoba Night of Champions event this past Saturday night at the Club Regent Casino and Event Centre in Winnipeg.

The Pistons were one of five teams nominated for the Calm Air Junior Team of the Year, for winning the ANAVET Cup and heading to the RBC Cup in 2018, as well as having another great season in 2018-19.

Head Coach and General Manager Paul Dyck, Athletic Therapist Jeff Eidse, and board members Claude Vielfaure and Dale Wohlgemuth were in attendance representing the organization during the dinner.

“It’s great to be recognized as one of the best,“ Pistons President and Governor Grant Lazaruk said. “It is our vision to be the best junior hockey program in Canada, and we are honoured and excited.”

The Pistons would like to congratulate all of the winners and nominees from all of the categories on their success and wish them the best as they continue their journey.
