FORT WILLIAM — The Lake Helen Braves enjoyed participating as one of 23 teams at the 2020 Anemki Unity Winter Classic, held Feb. 13-16 at the Fort William First Nation Arena.

“I was very happy the way they had it organized,” says RJ Thorsteinson, coach of the Lake Helen Braves. “It was very beneficial to all the kids, the unity of it all. I was very happy with what happened here today.”

Thorsteinson says the majority of the Lake Helen Braves are from the Red Rock Indian Band, also known as Lake Helen.

“We’ve been to the Little NHL, so it’s nice to see this here too,” Thorsteinson says. “Sometimes families can’t make it down there so it’s good to have this right in our backyard.”

The Lake Helen Braves lost 2-1 to the Ugly Pucklings team during the Peewee championship game on Feb. 16.
