A Visit From Doug Messier

In Saturday night’s 4-2 victory over the Surrey Eagles, the Chilliwack Chiefs scored four times in the second period. One of those markers was tallied by Luke Esposito. It was his first BCHL goal.

Even better, he had some family in town to see it.

Luke’s grandfather is Doug Messier, an accomplished player and coach in his own right. (If you recognize that last name – Yes, he’s Mark’s father. Impressive bloodlines.)

Part of Messier’s coaching odyssey included a stint with the St. Albert Saints of the AJHL. Chiefs Head Coach/GM Harvey Smyl spent a couple years in St. Albert on Messier’s teams in the early 80’s. Harvey has said that Messier’s influence has played a major role in his own coaching career.

I was fortunate to have Doug Messier join me during the second intermission of Saturday night’s game at Prospera Centre.
