Save-On-Foods Billet Families of the Month: November

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 November, we recognize billets from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, Chilliwack Chiefs and Coquitlam Express.

Alberni Valley Bulldogs

Family: Tyler & Kellie Steel

Billets since: 2018

Current billeted players: Emanuelson Charbonneau & Brady MacIsaac


“We started billeting when one of our sons moved away and billeted for hockey, so it made sense to open our doors for a player playing in our town. All we wanted was to provide a safe, comfortable home for these players, so they could focus on hockey. We have billeted many players and, honestly, the best times are sitting around the dinner table, telling stories. The laughs are what make it worth it. We have so many memories with each player past and present. These boys have become part of our family, not just the players, but their families have all become lifelong friends. We wouldn’t change a thing.”

-Tyler & Kellie Steel

Chilliwack Chiefs

Family: Chris, Larissa & Max Wiebe

Billets since: 2013

Current billeted players: Dalton MacGillivray


“It is so rewarding to welcome a boy into your home and family and support them as they work toward their hockey, school and life goals. We’ve made some wonderful connections over the years with our players and their families.”

-Chris & Larissa Wiebe

Coquitlam Express

Family: Akiko & Dan MacLean

Billets since: 2018

Current billeted players: Ray Hamlin & Jake Manfre


“We love supporting these athletes in every way we can, so they can pursue their dreams of taking their sport to the next level.”

-Akiko & Dan MacLean
