The Bonnyville Pontiacs are pleased to announce that for the fourth year in a row the organization will be represented at the RBC Cup National Junior A Championship. Play-by-play voice of the Pontiacs, Robb Hunter, was selected once again by Hockey Canada’s broadcast partner FAST HOCKEY to provide coverage of the RBC Cup in Vernon, British Columbia which runs May 10th to May 18th, 2014.
“Working with Robb for the past three years I have grown to appreciate his exceptional gift as a play-by-play announcer not only at the Junior A level but also hockey in Canada,” said PONTIACS General Manager and Head Coach Rick Swan. “Robb is outstanding at and driven to refine his craft and has been providing PONTIACS fans with exciting and outstanding play-by-play since moving to Bonnyville over eight years ago. Robb is even a better person. Robb is a huge part of our organization and a huge part of the Bonnyville community!”
Robb HUNTER has been the voice of the Pontiacs on Lakeland’s most popular radio station Kool 101.3 FM for eight seasons now and this will be his fourth trip to the RBC Cup having previously broadcast the 2013 tournament in Summerside, P.E.I., the 2012 tournament in Humboldt, Saskatchewan and the 2011 RBC Cup in Camrose, Alberta.
“Any chance you get to work with Hockey Canada on any event at any level you have to do your best to make yourself available,” said HUNTER. “It’s always an honour to be asked to take part in a national championship at any level, especially one as prestigious as the RBC Cup.”
In addition to being involved in four straight RBC Cups, HUNTER has called four TELUS Cup National Championships (Midget AAA National Championship), the 2011 Allan Cup National Championship (Senior A National Championship), the 2012 and 2011 World Sledge Hockey Challenge and the 2011 Esso Cup Female Midget National Championship on FAST Hockey.
The PONTIACS congratulate and are excited about Robb’s opportunity and national recognition and wish him the very best this week in Vernon, British Columbia. We are also proud to be associate with Robb.
