Jim (Newf) Vatour is Retiring
Submitted By Webmaster on Thursday, November 14, 2019
After more than 20 years of incredible service to the LJK and hockey in London, Jim 'Newf' Vatour has decided to retire.




Jim has volunteered at every position on a hockey team from Manager to Head Coach, at every age from Minor Atom to Midget.

He has filled many positions on the LJK Board of Directors since joining the Board in 2003.

Jim was awarded Lifetime Membership in our Organization.


Jim personally would like to thank all the players, parents, and coaches that have supported him over the years.


The LJK Board of Directors would like to express our sincere gratitude to Jim for everything he has done for the Board, and for hockey in general, and wish him all the best in the years to come.

Thanks Jim!!!
