With the loss to the Estevan Bruins on Thursday night in game 5 of the SJHL Wild Card series, the Flin Flon Bombers 2013-14 hockey season came to an end. With it were the final games for two members of their hockey club, forward Brody Robinson and defenseman Brock Hounsell who both move on due to age. The Flin Flon Bombers would like to thank the two players for their time with the club and their hard work over the past two plus seasons.
Brock Hounsell - Martensville, SK
2011 - 2014
149 GP - 14 G - 33 A - 47 PTS - 289 PIM
Hounsell signed with the club out of the 2011 fall main camp when the 6’1 197 pounder impressed Head Coach Mike Reagan with his steady stay at home style. He impressed so much that Reagan traded 1992 born defenseman Gabe Minville to the Portage Terriers of the MJHL so that Hounsell could gain more playing minutes to develop. Minville was one of the pieces of the previous off season trades that saw star forward Andrew Johnston move to the Humboldt Broncos. Hounsell saw his point production improve over the three seasons with Flin Flon, from 9 to 16 to 22 in his final season, as well as his penalty minutes. Hounsell was always ready to step up for a teammate and was honored for his play being named Co-Captain of the team and the first recipient of the team’s Warrior Award.
Brody Robinson - Red Deer, AB
2012 - 2014
Acquired: Trade June 22, 2012 - Drumheller Dragons - AJHL
104 - GP - 11 - G 26 A - 37 PTS - 176 PIM
Robinson played one full season of junior hockey before joining the Bombers in the summer of 2012. Robinson was acquired from the Drumheller Dragons of the AJHL along with forward Logan Sceviour and future considerations for Bomber defenseman 1992 born Stefan Virtanen, and had an immediate impact with the Bombers scoring three points (1g, 2a) and seven penalty minutes in his first four games. Like Hounsell, Robinson was known for his gritty, physical play having accumulated 270 penalty minutes over three seasons with his two teams. This past season Robinson was named the team’s Most Popular Player at their annual awards night.
