Austin Mood-Flagg played senior hockey last season for the High Prairie Regals. This coming season he’ll be back in Slave Lake with the Junior ‘A’ Icedogs.
The news came in recently from owner Lauren Barr.
“We gave our full ride scholarship to Austin Mood-Flagg,” Barr said in an email to The Leader. “He wrote a fantastic 2,000 word essay and performed at an elite level at the hockey camp. We are very excited to have him on the team and to be the first recipient of the Bill Clarke Memorial Fund.”
In other news from the Icedogs’ camp, Barr says head coach Todd White became a full-time employee of the club as of June 3 and will be looking to buy a house in Slave Lake. That will have to wait until after the ‘Global Showcase’ event in Las Vegas June 17 – 19.
“Very excited and looking forward to filling some roster spots,” says White.
White and Barr were in town recently and had further news. The ice is booked for ‘main camp,’ Aug 27 – 29. The players from Ukraine will arrive well before that, around the middle of the month. White was off to a couple more showcase events to see who else might be available (and willing) to play in Slave Lake. One was in Calgary and the other in Las Vegas.
Sixteen players are signed so far. The season is expected to start in early October.
