St. Vital Victorias 3rd Annual Sportsman Dinner



The St. Vital Victoria˘s present our third annual sportsman dinner, Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 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

Kelly Taylor

A former goaltending prospect, Taylor is feeling pretty comfortable these days with his decision to give up his mediocre career in hockey and pursue his dream of becoming a stand-up comedian.
With the physical attributes of a high school quarterback and the comedic commitment of Jerry Lewis, Kelly Taylor is taking the comedy world by storm. He may have given up hockey for comedy, but this funny man sure knows how to score on stage.

In recent years, Taylor can be found throughout North America. Having already conquered Canada, he is one of the busiest comedians on the American college scene today. From the first time stepping on stage it was only 9 short months later that Kelly was headlining. In just his second year of comedy, Kelly Taylor shocked the comedy industry by placing second in the prestigious Just for Laughs Homegrown competition. Competing against comics who have been in the business for ten plus years, Kelly Taylor firmly made his mark at JFL. His performance did not go unnoticed as creative heads from NBC Universal, Happy Gilmore Productions and Jimmy Kimmel quickly approached with interest. Later that year Kelly did a tour of the Canadian Colleges, and was Named Canadian College Comedian of the year.
Already conquering Canada he has now moved on to being one the busiest comedians on the American college scene. Kelly Also starred as the lead role in the movie Sure Shot Dombrowski. Kellys ability to headline clubs, corporate and college events at just three years into his budding career is evidence that this kid is the real deal. Aside from Just for Laughs, he has already appeared at The Vancouver and Halifax Comedy Festivals. Kelly has performed all across the country including LA and New York City at some of the most well respected clubs in the industry.




Our Special Guest Speaker

Yvon Lambert

Yvon Lambert scored over 200 goals in his eight seasons with the Montreal Canadiens but one stands taller than all the others combined.

On May 10, 1979, the Habs went into overtime in the seventh game of their semifinal series against Boston thanks to an infamous too many men call against the Bruins which led to a late tying goal by Guy Lafleur that set the stage for Lambert to play the hero.

Nine minutes into the sudden death period, linemate Mario Tremblay threw the puck towards the Bruins net and Lambert found the mesh, sending his team into the Finals and cementing his place in Canadiens history. While most long-time Habs fans remember the big left winger˘s overtime clincher against the Bruins, many have forgotten that Lambert also scored the Stanley Cup winner against the Rangers less than two weeks later.

Lambert, who hoisted the Stanley Cup four times in his career, spent most of his time playing on the Habs˘ hard-working second line with Mario Tremblay and Doug Risebrough. Equally effective at shutting down enemy attackers as they were at launching their own assaults, the trio was an essential component in four consecutive Stanley Cup Championships in the late 1970s.

Always popular with his teammates, the outgoing, fun-loving Lambert enjoyed himself as much away from the ice as he did on it. A fan favorite, he was also the most enthusiastic singer the team had seen since Bernard Geoffrion, appearing on local television programs and having his vocal stylings immortalized on vinyl.

One of the most-recognized Habs alumni, Lambert regularly laces up his skates each winter with the Canadiens Oldtimers squad, still holding his own with and against the best players of his era.
