As the weather gets colder and thoughts turn to Christmas parties and time off work with family, Shamrocks’ Head Coach Bob Heyes, Captain Matt Yager and top goal scorer, Rhys Duch, talk about what the holidays mean to the.

Bob Heyes: “The last few years we have taken in a play at Chemainus Theatre— which I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy at the time— but, now look forward to every year. We rotate having a big Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve. Then Christmas morning is visiting family around Victoria and upisland. It is always about family with lots of storytelling, memories, and great food. I also look forward to the World Junior Hockey Tournament starting on Boxing Day; maybe Santa Claus will find me a couple of tickets for a game in Victoria this year!”
