Hockey Canada coach takes Chilliwack players through practice

Chilliwack Minor Hockey’s female players got to meet three time world champion Delaney Collins.

Delaney Collins, head coach of Hockey Canada’s U-18 National Womens Team, dropped by Prospera Centre Tuesday afternoon to conduct a practice with all of Chilliwack Minor Hockey’s female players.

Delaney and Chilliwack Chief coaches Jason Tatarnic and Brian Maloney are all alums of Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, home of the Hounds in Wilcox, Saskatchewan.

Collins and Maloney went to high school together and her father actually coached Maloney at one point. When Tatarnic and Maloney heard Delaney was going to be in the neighborhood this week, they reached out to her and arranged for Collins to come out for a practice and a meet-and-green with the young CMHA players.

Collins was energetic and interactive as she took the players through a series of skating/skills drills.

As a player, Collins won three gold medals with Canada’s senior team at world championships, and she wore her Team Canada jersey to the practice.
