St. Vital Victoria's 4th Annual Sportsman Dinner



The St. Vital Victoria's present our fourth annual sportsman dinner, Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 at:

Canad Inns Destination Centre Fort Garry
1824 Pembina Highway
 Cocktails 6:00 PM Dinner 7:00 PM

 

St Vital Victoria's Junior Hockey Club is a community based team with over 40 years as a member on the MMJHL. We have a proud tradition of providing elite hockey players ages from 17-21 to continue playing hockey at a high level while combining university education, post-secondary education or beginning their working careers. 

Funds raised from this event will help offset the rising cost of running a Junior Hockey Program which includes ice rentals, equipment costs, league fees and insurance.

The St Vital Victoria's are proud to introduce our evening line-up:

Our Master of Ceremonies

Phil Aubrey

One third of Winnipeg's #1 radio rock morning show on Power 97. Phil is a lifelong Winnipegger who has been playing hockey since he was 5-years-old. He realized he wasn't going anywhere in hockey when he was cut from the Oxford Heights 9A team. Phil has two young sons and says he has every intention of forcing them to play hockey whether they like it or not.





The Entertainment

Rob Pue

       High energy and extremely funny
       Great guy and amazing story teller

Rob has become one of the brightest voices to hit the Canadian comedy scene. With unmistakable charm, wit and trade mark act outs, Rob delivers a must see performance that has helped him to generate an impressive comedic resume that includes winning the prestigious 28th Annual San Francisco International Comedy Competition. Rob has also appeared as a regular on the MTV series Punk'd, showcased at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, and recently had his one hour "Comedy Now" special air on the Comedy Channel.





Our Special Guest Speaker

Chris Nilan

Chris Nilan was a pugnacious and hard-working right-winger who played nearly 700 NHL games for three different teams. He was an enforcer, a tireless worker in the trenches, and an able scorer.

The native of the Boston suburb of West Roxbury played two years at Northeastern University. He was selected 231st overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1978 and was considered a longshot to make the league. In 1979-80 he made his presence felt with the Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the AHL by scoring 15 goals and registering 304 minutes in penalties in only 49 games. The Habs called up him for the last 15 games of the season and dressed for five playoff contests.

Nilan was a regular on the Habs for seven and a half years beginning in 1980-81. He scored a career high 21 goals in 1984-85 playing chiefly on a line with Guy Carbonneau and Bob Gainey. The next season, the fiesty winger scored 19 goals and was a physical force when the Canadiens won the Stanley Cup.

Nilan's reputation was such that he was placed on the Americans' 1987 Canada Cup roster. By January 1988 his deteriorating relationship with coach Jean Perron led to a trade with the New York Rangers. The fiery winger battled injuries during his two full seasons on Broadway.

Nilan was traded to the Boston Bruins in June 1990 for Greg Johnston and helped his new team reach the semi-finals in 1991. Midway through the 1992 season, Nilan got his wish to finish his career in Montreal when his original club picked him up on waivers. He retired in 1992 with over 200 points and 3,000 minutes in penalties.
