Victory on ice: CANSUBFOR claims championship in thrilling overtime win  


Team CANSUBFOR battled hard on March 13 against the Naval Fleet School (Pacific) (NFS(P)) team in a thrilling overtime win, securing the 3v3 Intermural Hockey Championship title for 2024. The team felt great support from all CANSUBFOR, many of whom came out to cheer on the team on their path to victory.

The Klaxon replaced the goal horn—a nod to the traditional submariner horn—and the Jolly Rogers and Submarine Dolphin flags were on full display. The entire team, united in their efforts, worked hard and hustled every shift. Sonar Operator Sailor First Class Nathan Bisson was the MVP with the overtime goal, but it could have easily been any number of players or the goalie, who made several huge saves throughout the game.

The team wore the HMCS Chicoutimi jerseys, the same ones used for many seasons in the Chris Saunders Memorial Tournament in memory of Lieutenant (Navy) Chris Saunders, who lost his life in the HMCS Chicoutimi fire while operating off the UK.

A heartfelt thank you to the Personnel Support Programs team for their meticulous organization, the arena staff and management for the top-notch facilities and great ice, and the officials for generously donating their time.

The team looks forward to seeing HMCS Corner Brook’s crest painted on the ice next season to celebrate their championship.
