The Bonnyville Pontiacs want to congratulate the Play-by-play voice of the Pontiacs, Robb Hunter on being selected once again by Hockey Canada’s broadcast partner FAST Hockey to provide coverage of the World Junior pre-season tournament in Montreal, Quebec this past week.
“Robb has an exceptional gift as a play-by-play announcer and is outstanding at and driven to refine his craft all the time. It is always exciting when Robb is called upon to be involved in the nation’s top profile events as he is a huge part of our organization and a huge part of the Bonnyville community!” says PONTIACS General Manager and Head Coach Rick Swan.
Robb HUNTER has been the voice of the Pontiacs on Lakeland’s most popular radio station Kool 101.3 FM for eight seasons now. “Any chance you get to work with Hockey Canada on any event at any level you have to do your best to make yourself available,” said HUNTER. “It’s always an honor to be asked to take part in a national championship at any level, especially one as prestigious as the World Juniors.”
In addition to being involved in four straight RBC Cups, HUNTER has called four TELUS Cup National Championships (Midget AAA National Championship), the 2011 Allan Cup National Championship (Senior A National Championship), the 2012 and 2011 World Sledge Hockey Challenge and the 2011 Esso Cup Female Midget National Championship on FAST Hockey.
