Elizabeth Mousseau comes from a hockey family and always wanted to be involved with the Sudbury Wolves in some fashion.

It started with her father's sponsorship of local hockey teams, continued as a teen when she would accompany her older brother — a Wolves fanatic — to home games, and carried on with her son, another big fan of the Pack.

This year, she decided to become a billet for a Wolves player, and the family welcomed defenceman David Eccles into her home.

When she heard the Canadian Hockey League was sponsoring a contest among billet families in Canada — the Dodge Family All-Stars Contest — Mousseau jumped on board, sharing her story on the contest website in hopes of winning.

Finalists in each of the participating leagues win a trip to the BMO Memorial Cup, while the grand prize winner walks (or drives rather) away in a new Dodge Caravan.

“The final judging is not based entirely on the votes, but it is important,” Mousseau told Northern Life. “I like to think my story is compelling and I have a good chance at succeeding here, but I am looking for additional exposure to boost the votes!

“I want Sudbury to know they have the best billet families in Canada!”

The family currently sits second among OHL billet families. Voting ends March 20.
