The current Campbell River Storm roster was outnumbered Sunday afternoon. More than 25 alumni returned to the Rod Brind’Amour Arena on Feb. 9 for a good cause. They took part in an annual charity game in support of Cameryn’s Cause for Kids Society, a local non-profits that provides financial assistance to families with a child who is sick or injured, or to families who experience the death of a child.

Both the alumni and the current players were mixed into to teams: Black and White for the casual afternoon face-off.

Ultimately it was the White team that came out ahead, defeating the Black team 10-8.

Dane Feeney, who played for the Storm in their Keystone Championships 2014/15 season, earned a hat trick and one assist for the White team. He was named first star of the game.

Braeden Cyra, who played 32 games with the Storm in the 2015/26 season before making the shift to the BCHL, scored two points and added to assists for the White team. He was named second star of the game.

Dylan McCann, who was with the Storm from 2015 to 2018, scored one goal and had three assists. He was named third star of the game.

Coach Lee Stone took a break from bench boss to handle MC duties.

Fans of the team from about 2014 onward would have recognized many faces on the ice. In an interview before Sunday’s game, Stone said many of those players were not available to play in previous years as they were still competing with their clubs.

“When people see those guys come out on the ice, it’ll be kind of a neat kick down memory lane and remembering some of those successful years we had,” said Stone.

The event raised $1,653 for Cameryn’s Cause.

The Storm are back in action Thursday night as they hit the road to face the Nanaimo Buccaneers at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

Campbell River is back at home for their penultimate home game of the regular season Friday against the league-leading Victoria Cougars.

Their final home game before playoffs is Feb. 21 against the Bucs.

This story was updated from a previous version to reflect the amount raised for Cameryn’s Cause once the total was available.
