Feature Game Team Preview: Devs

The much-anticipated Feature Game is the Division Championship Final for the Molson Canadian 25+ Division. It will be a battle of British Columbia between Team Britvegas (Richmond) and Team Devs (Burnaby). Game starts at 7pm at Minoru Arenas. Admission is free and seating is first come, first served. Doors open at 6pm.

The Devs skate into the feature game as the favourite. They are the only undefeated team in the Molson Canadian 25+ Division with a record of three wins.

Established four years ago, the Devs are a Burnaby-based team of roofers, hockey trainers and even an insurance salesman. “Just a regular group of guys that have a lot of fun,” said alternate captain Brandon Harrison.

Harrison pointed out that his club might have an ace up their sleeve to counter the Britvegas locals; some Devs previously played in Minoru Arena during their junior careers and are familiar with the rink’s quirks for puck bounces off the boards.

“At the end of the day, we’re going to be playing for a championship,” Harrison pointed out.

Devs to watch

Three players – 13 Chris Shudo, 17 Brandon Campos and 21 Ryan Uchaz – are tied for the team’s scoring lead with five points each.

Goalie 30 Kristian Harold has guided the Devs for two games with a 2.44 goals-against-average; back-up netminder 34 David Banka only allowed two goals in his lone appearance.
