Submitted By Kent Fay on Saturday, December 21, 2013
Elmvale's CHRIS BIGRAS will represent Canada at the 2013-2014 IIHF Ice Hockey Junior World Championship.  The former Coyote will be a member of the defensive core that also includes Barrie Colts Captain Aaron Ekblad.

Our Bantam Euro Tour Team will now not only represent Elmvale by attending the World Junior Championship games, but will cheer on their very own Coyote representative.  

Chris will feel more at home in Malmo, Sweden when he can look into the crowd and see our Bantam Boys wearing their Canada gear and holding their GO BIGRAS GO banner!  Take some time over the holidays to watch TSN and look for #3 Chris Bigras and also some avid fans in the stands!
