Aboriginal skaters selected for Team BC

Two Chilliwack hockey players are heading back to Quebec for the 2014 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships.

Chilliwack’s Maddi Krulicki is one of two locals playing for BC this year at the 2014 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships.

Krulicki has represented Team BC on the female side the last two years.

She returns to the scene of the 2013 tourney in Kahnawake, Quebec. Located in Mohawk territory, Kahnawake is a small community north of Montreal.

Krulicki is one of four centres on the 20 person Team BC roster, which opens the tournament with two games April 29.

Krulicki and company face Ontario and Alberta on day one. The rest of the field includes Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Atlantic, North and a Quebec-based team called Eastern Door and North.

Krulicki plays her minor hockey with Chilliwack’s midget Warriors.

Another local, Hayden Guilderson, will represent Chilliwack on the boy’s side. Guilderson was at last year’s tournament as well, helping his team to a gold medal. Team BC beat Ontario 5-3 in the final to win its first title in the tourney’s 12 year history.

The five-foot-eight and 160 pound centre spent last season with the BC Major Midget Hockey League Fraser Valley Thunderbirds.
