The CFB Esquimalt Tritons have advanced to the CAF Men’s National Hockey Championship following a 2-0 series sweep over the CFB Comox Flyers at Wurtele Arena on Jan. 13.

Capt Aaron Lee scored a goal and tallied two assists as the Tritons defeated the Flyers 5-1 in the Pacific Regionals best-of-three series opening game last Wednesday morning. Capt Lee, a forward who works for the dental unit, was named Player of the Game following game one, and Tournament MVP of the series.

Tritons goaltender PO2 Randy Collens of CF Fleet School was named Player of the Game following game 2 after turning aside 30 shots in his team’s 6-2 victory. The result cemented the CFB Esquimalt Tritons in place to represent the Pacific Region at the CAF National Hockey Championships, which takes place at CFB Borden, March 5 to 10.

The Tritons are now looking to improve on their 5th place finish last year at the annual championship tournament as they face their opponents from Quebec, Prairie, Ontario, and Atlantic Regions.
