High River Flyers Coach Tyson Avery was mighty impressed by the Heritage Junior "B" Hockey League's All-Star game in Okotoks Sunday, January 7.

He says the Bisons did a great job hosting the event, and the fans really showed their support.

"It was good, we got a lot of fans out there. That was really great to see as we showed off our talent. The fans got to see some players they don't see very often from the North (Division). It was a really good weekend. A good Sunday."

Avery says he'd like the see the event become an annual tradition for the League, as well as the Flyers looking to host it one day as well.
