2010 SaskEnergy Hockey Weekend

Lanigan, Saskatchewan, the 2010 host community, was buzzing with excitement and activities over the course of the weekend on January 15-17. From a gala dinner featuring guest speaker, NHL great, Dave "Tiger" Williams all the way to All-Star games featuring the best of the Female Midget AAA and the Saskatchewan Junior B brackets, the town had every base covered.

While Lanigan was the host community for this year's Hockey Day In Saskatchewan event, 80 other communities across the province held activities to celebrate the day.

Carlyle hosted a street hockey game for the whole town, Star City held a game that placed the parents of the players against their children, and Meadow Lake held draws for prizes during every game. These were just a few of the exciting activities planned for Saskatchewan communities. While each town did something different, they all had the same intention: celebrate the sport of hockey and the impact it has on bringing the community together.

Throughout many of the communities, SaskEnergy Volunteer Champion awards were presented to members of the community who have consistently and selflessly donated their time and hard work to their local rink and hockey associations. In all, 22 Volunteer Champion awards were handed out over the course of the Hockey Day In Saskatchewan weekend.

New for 2010, SaskEnergy was proud to hold the WHL Youth Experience Contest. SaskEnergy provided a ticket package for six teams to attend one of 5 Western Hockey League games on the SaskEnergy Hockey Day in Saskatchewan weekend. The opportunity for these youth served as both a team-building experience and a way for the young hockey team to see the potential outcome of their hard work and dedication to the sport of Hockey. In all, 55 entries were received. The lucky winners of the ticket packages were the SVP Atom Mad Dogs, Big River Atom Blackhawks, Gravelbourg Novice Stars, Swift Current Novice Wild, Raymore Rockets and the Pierceland Novice Panthers.

Events like SaskEnergy Hockey Day in Saskatchewan show the province that the heart of any community really is in the local hockey rink. What was once just a place to play hockey now symbolizes the unity and spirit of communities across Saskatchewan.
