Salmon Arm not hockeyville
Salmon Arm did not make the cut to continue on in the competition to be named Kraft Hockeyville 2014.
However, despite being unable to garner enough votes to make it to the final round, Salmon Arm's Shaw Centre will still be getting $50,000 towards arena upgrades.
Salmon Arm finished fourth overall in the Canada-wide contest netting 847,193 votes total. Unfortunately, that was not enough to beat their western bracket competitor Sylvan Lake, Alta. who tallied 1,563,797 to secure their spot in the final two.
The eastern winner was Kingston, NS., who registered 1,472,836 votes, edging out Central Bedeque, P.E.I, with 1,403,259 votes.
Sylvan Lake, and Kingston, will both take home $100,000 in prize money, while the last round of voting is now taking place to see who will win the Hockeyville crown and an NHL pre-season game.
