PoMo hockey player, other local athletes, headed to Canada Winter Games

A decision by a Port Moody hockey player to give up the grass version of the game so she can focus on the ice version is reaping dividends.

Jenna Buglioni, who’s 16, is the second-leading scorer in the Female Midget AAA hockey league. She has 32 goals and 61 points in 26 games for the Greater Vancouver Comets, just five behind her teammate, Jennifer Gardiner. The prolific pair have also led their team to an undefeated record in the five-team league.

Buglioni will also play for Team BC at the Canada Winter Games, that begin Feb. 16 in Red Deer, Alta. She's the only representative from Port Moody.

Last summer, Buglioni was one of 43 players from across the country invited to a selection camp for Canada’s national U18 women’s team that recently won the world championship in Japan, but she didn’t make the cut.

And when Buglioni graduates from Gleneagle secondary, she’ll head to Ohio State University on a hockey scholarship.

Until recently, Buglioni was also a star in field hockey, with her high school team, as well as age-group provincial teams and even a tryout with the Canadian national junior development squad.

Other local athletes headed to Red Deer for the Canada Winter Games include:

From Coquitlam:
Hayato Sato (curling)
Sherilyn Chung (speed skating)
Ashley Robb (ringette)
Matthew Seminoff  (hockey)
Andrei Secu (biathlon)

Thomas Milic (hockey)

From Port Coquitlam:
Joshua MIki (curling)
Bryan Miki (curling coach)
Noah Hyun (speed skating)
Liudmila Lobaznyuk (gymnastics coach)
