  • (1888PressRelease) January 18, 2013 - With its state-of-the-art facilities, Pure Fitness is the ideal fitness partner for the intern program, which brings Canadian hockey players to Hong Kong to play in the CIHL, coach youth hockey and gain professional experience with a local company. In support of the partnership, Pure Fitness has offered this year's interns complimentary memberships through the remainder of the 2012-2013 CIHL season.

    Commented CIHL co-founder and director Gregory Smith: "The CIHL is delighted to welcome Pure Fitness as a partner for the CIHL Intern Program. With the CIHL playing just once a week it is essential for our players to maintain elite fitness and through Pure Fitness, the CIHL Interns are able stay in top playing condition."

    The CIHL Intern Program was introduced this season as a way to bring hockey experience to Hong Kong, while providing a unique opportunity for young Canadians to gain international playing and professional experience. This season's interns are Devin Welsh from Lakehead University and Adam Maglio from the University of British Columbia, who was drafted first overall in this season's draft.

    Both players have excelled this season and are in the top 10 in scoring, with Welsh having accumulated nine goals and 15 assists with the Kowloon Warriors and Maglio notching up nine goals and 10 assists with the Hong Kong Tycoons. With three months remaining in the 2012-2013 season, Welsh and the Warriors are in a fight for top spot in the league, while Maglio and the Tycoons look to break a four-game losing streak.

    As the interns prepare for the final few games of the regular season and the intense CIHL playoffs, Maglio and Welsh are working to stay in top shape to help give their teams the extra advantage.

    "As a leading lifestyle brand, Pure and the CIHL promote many of the same values for a balanced lifestyle," Smyth said. "Over the years, Pure has done an outstanding job of creating an atmosphere and brand dedicated to total well-being. At the CIHL, we aim to promote a passion for sport, a sporting attitude and a commitment to teamwork through programs such as the CIHL Intern Program and of course on-ice play."
