“It’s a pleasure to be the new voice of the Bonnyville Junior A Pontiacs. I’m excited for the hockey season to begin and to watch the Pontiacs compete against the best in the AJHL,” stated Menzie. "The Pontiacs set a franchise record for wins last year and are looking to build off of that success. It will be interesting to watch how this new team develops.”
Our entire organization welcomes Michael as the new radio voice of the Pontiacs. His passion for sports and writing will serve him well in his new role.
