KIJHL Mourns Sudden Passing of Former Coach, Morton Johnston

The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) is mourning the sudden passing of assistant coach and former player, Morton Johnston. The 25-year-old died in a motor vehicle crash on Sunday, hours before the Princeton Posse team was due to play a conference-championship clinching game against Revelstoke.

In his honour, and with the support of his family, the team decided to play the game and earned the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference Finals title. They will now face off against Kimberley for the Teck Cup.

The KIJHL issued a statement on Monday praising Johnston’s tenacity and energy as a player and his beloved status among teammates. They extended their deepest sympathies to his family, Posse organization and community of Princeton.
