The BCHL and Save-On-Foods are proud to once again recognize billet families from across the league for going the extra mile to support BCHL players off the ice with the Billet Families of the Month award.
Throughout the season, the league will recognize one billet family from each team and the outstanding work they do to support junior hockey in their community.
Save-On-Foods will donate a $100 grocery gift card card to each of the families honoured as BCHL Billet Families of the Month.
With so many fantastic billet families across the league, the BCHL and Save-On-Foods could not be happier to recognize just a few of these great people in our communities.
For February, we recognize billets from the Powell River Kings, Prince George Spruce Kings and Salmon Arm Silverbacks.
Powell River Kings
Family: Risteau Family
Billets since: 2021

“Our family has always enjoyed going to the Kings games and cheering them on. I’m glad that we had the opportunity to give one of them a home away from home for the season. Ryder has become a part of our extended family and we’ve loved every minute of it.”
Prince George Spruce Kings
Family: Jason & Angela Ramsey
Billets since: 2016
Current billeted players: Austin Fraser & Killian McGregor-Bennett
“We have been billeting since 2016 and we love the game and enjoy having the opportunity to have the players be part of our family. We enjoy watching the players progress in the league, while chasing their dream.”

Salmon Arm Silverbacks
Family: Greg Williams & Marcie Zimmer
Billets since: 2020

“Having a minor hockey player of our own, we wanted him to have great role models to look up to. To see how there are different journeys with similar outcomes. These Junior A hockey players need a safe home away from home, which we pride ourselves on providing for them.”
-Greg Williams & Marcie Zimmer
