Team Price needed shootout to edge Team Gorkoff at the fourth annual Christmas Classic Hockey Game before more than 300 spectators on Boxing Day at the Castlegar Complex.

The game finished tied after regulation time and overtime, requiring shootout to decide the winner.

In a bold move by Team Price coach Ryan Byers, he put in a “rested” Curtis Siminoff for the shootout which proved to be the difference.

Siminoff stopped all three shots to lead Team Price to victory. 

Dave Bond came up with the clutch tying goal and shoot out winner as Team Price defeated Team Gorkoff in an epic Christmas Classic Game.

However, the real winners that night were the Selkirk Saints hockey club that raised over $1000 at the event. 

Head of Selkirk College Athletics, Kim Verigin worked hand in hand with Christmas Classic organizer Bergen Price to put on a first class event. 

Price and Verigin want to thank everyone attending the event to support the Saints and the food drive.
