Kukla's Korner Hockey

You Can Call Them Heroes Now

from Mike Youds of the Kamloops Daily News,

An oldtimers hockey team hit the ice as darkness fell Wednesday, but they weren't chasing a puck.

The Old Dogs jumped into action and probably saved the lives of a woman and two dogs after they plunged into the water from a ledge of ice along the Thompson River.

Team members were having a few beers at the Anavets clubhouse (formerly the Beachhouse Restaurant), with a clear view of the riverfront a stone's throw away, when duty called.

"We were just trying to help the young lady out of the river when she went in," said Bert Kant, drying out after his January dip. "I missed the Polar Bear Swim," he quipped.
