The Sackville Blazers hockey organization has long been the hallmark of amateur sports organizations in the community.
Formed in 1982 to offset the loss of the Bedford Rangers as a medium for local players to hone their skills at a higher level of competition, the relocation of the team to Sackville more than achieved that purpose.
But it wasn’t until the 2002-2003 the Junior B Blazers reach their pinnacle – the first league championship and the beginning of a three successive Nova Scotia and the Don Johnson Cup, emblematic of Atlantic regional championships.
Those who formed the initial group successful in establishing the Blazers in 1982 included Bill Chase, Ken Faulkner, Frank King, Ron King, Doug Lively, Harold Levangie, Bill MacDonald, Danny MacKinnon, Thomas Peters and Bill Repchull.
Carrying on the legacy of the founding group today are Dwight Dempster, Dianne Gray, John Gray, Shirley Morgan, Wayne Scott, Wendell Hume, Barry Barnet and Steve Blackmore.
