Submitted By kfay on Sat 12 21, 13

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!
