The Junior C Otters held their 2018-19 end of season banquet at the Active Living Centre on Sunday, March 31. It was a time to celebrate the season as a team as well as say sad goodbyes. Coach Brent Tomlinson, who announced last month that he will be stepping down, held back tears as he was honouring players along with his co-coach for the season, Marc Gagnon.
The team was joined by the sponsors and volunteers that supported the team, and the Otters association provided all with a delicious dinner, made by Family Place Restaurant.
Monty Clouthier, the President of the Jr C Otters, commended the players for the heart and dedication they showed throughout the season.
He also recognized the aged-out players who had their final year of junior hockey with the Otters: Nathan Delarosbil #19, Cole Gilligan #8 and Tyler Gervais-Rolfe #17. The three players gave it their all for their team and their stats below prove that their time on the Otters was beneficial.

The night proceeded with the following awards, presented by 2018-19 co-coaches Marc Gagnon and Brent Tomlinson (left and right respectively in all photos, except where noted):
Dedication to Community Service – Cody Jones (unable to attend)
A big thank you was given to Coach Brent Tomlinson as he moves on to new adventures, as well as to some of the players that will not be returning next season as they will be on their own journey to school. Good luck to them all.
The Otters may participate in one final tournament on April 12-14—watch for details.
