Norm Daley, Co-Chair of the 2016 WWHC, is pleased with the announcement, saying “It was wonderful to work with the City of Kamloops, Hockey Canada, sponsors, volunteers, and fans to create such an amazing event. We had a great team to work with, and Jon (Pankuch) and I are so pleased that this event was selected for this award”.
City of Kamloops Tournament Capital and Special Events Supervisor, Sean Smith, accepted the award on behalf of Norm Daley and Jon Pankuch today at a luncheon hosted by Scott Russell of CBC Sports.
