A few people have stepped up to fill important volunteer roles with the Slave Lake Icedogs. That’s the Junior hockey team that plans to begin play this fall in the Western Provinces Hockey Association.
As reported earlier, the players pay to play and some will be upgrading their education during the season. Helping with that will be Alisha David, as the Icedogs’ Education Coordinator.
“She will be assisting the players that are doing high school and college courses and will help the Ukraine players with English,” says coach Todd White.
Other positions, passed on by team owner Lauren Barr, are Megan McNeil as Game Day Manager, Carmen Pearson as Marketing Manager, Lana Daniels as Billet Coordinator and Brett Morton as ‘The Voice of the Icedogs.’
In other news from the Icedogs’ camp, White says the showcase event for prospective players in Las Vegas last month went well, with over 400 players participating. He’s in touch with a few of them, he says, and hopes “something good will come of it.”
Meanwhile, the Enoch Tomahawks of the WPHA announced their team name and head coach last week. He’s Darren Reid, former NHL player with Tampa and Philadelphia who last coached with the Drayton Valley Thunder.
