The Richmond Midget C3 team won the Vancouver Canuck Place Charity Hockey Tournament over the Christmas break, sporting a perfect 5-0 record.

In the round robin, Richmond defeated Hope, Burnaby, and Vancouver to qualify for the championship playoffs.

As luck would have it, Richmond met up again with Hope in the semifinals. It was an end-to-end game, between two evenly matched teams.  With just over a minute remaining, and Richmond up 3-2, Hope pulled their goaltender, but Richmond was able to notch the empty-netter to clinch the victory.

The final pitted the undefeated Richmond and an undefeated Surrey team against each other, with Richmond winning 1-0. This was a hard fought game from the start, with strong physical play combined with a fast paced game, making this a goaltenders’ duel. Richmond notched the first goal of the game on the power play and despite excellent chances by both teams, the final score remained 1-0.  Mark Cayer was outstanding in earning the shutout victory for Richmond, while Kevin Coates was the game MVP.

The team is Mark Cayer, Kevin Coates, Manmeet Dogra, Ben Kiang, Sam Kiang, Nathan Lau, Matt Mah, Nathan Mak, Jordan Moss, Braxton Nomura, Arman Sandhu, Nick Seto, Jocelyn Tang, Justin Uyeno, Darren Whiteside, Alisha Wong and Tyler Yip.  They are coached by Grant Coates, Steve Yip and Jim Seto and managed by Mel Mah.
