VERNON, B.C.: The BCHL has announced it will be naming it's top defenceman award after former Vernon Laker Campbell Blair. The Vernon Vipers organization would like to congratulate Campbell on this well deserved honour.
The former blueliner had an incredible two seasons with the Lakers including his final year of junior when he posted 109 points in 52 games including 38-goals and 71-assists. Not only was he offensively gifted, that season he also racked up over 200 penalty minutes as well.
He played 185 regular season games in the BCHL including a couple of seasons with the Summerland Broncos before joining the Vernon Lakers for the 1985-86 season. After Junior hockey, he would go on to play in NCAA hockey with the University of Maine.
Blair returned to the BCHL in the mid-90's when he became an assistant and then head coach of the Victoria Salsa hockey team before leaving to coach back at the University of Maine.
Our fans have still not forgotten the contribution Campbell Blair made to hockey in Vernon and we would like to again congratulate him and his family on this special honour!
