28 Oct HORSE LAKE MINOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION
At Edmonton’s last home game of the season, on Thursday, April 4, 2019, the Edmonton Oilers hosted the San Jose Sharks while Steel River Group hosted 110 Horse Lake Minor Hockey Association players, coaches and chaperones by donating tickets to the game.
Steel River Group has a “One Team” approach to working with communities, industry and businesses and wanted to acknowledge the commitment Horse Lake Minor Hockey makes each year to the kids and community of Horse Lake First Nation. It was perfect timing to celebrate the accomplishments of Horse Lake’s “One Team”, with six tiers of the Horse Lake Thunder rolling into town for the 26th Annual Native Provincials Hockey Championship in Edmonton April 4 to 7, 2019.
“We wanted to reward and respect everyone’s commitment to fitness, family, sport and teamwork,” says Trent Fequet, Steel River Group’s CEO.
A special VIP tour of the Hockey Hall of Fame Room during the first and second intermissions was also provided though the Oilers Group Ticket Sales and the kids had fun seeing all the memorabilia from the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, including Gretzky’s original dressing stall that’s signed by the 1984 Oilers Cup team. Another highlight included the kids and adults taking turns pretending to have a press conference in the studio location where the Oiler’s Coach Ken Hitchcock addresses the media after the game. Hunter, the Oilers mascot, also paid the kids a visit.
Congratulations on another great season, Horse Lake Minor Hockey Association!
