Hockey season might be winding down, but for the 31 young players who were part of the Hockey Canada Foundation’s Dreams Come True program during the 2015 TELUS Cup, a new season can’t come soon enough.
The Hockey Canada Foundation continued its tradition of leaving a legacy in HCF Celebrity Classic host cities, partnering with the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation on Family Day to open a community rink in Beacon Heights in Edmonton, Alta.
The Hockey Canada Foundation Celebrity Classic is returning to Canada’s largest city; Toronto, Ont., will welcome the annual gala and golf tournament for the fifth time in 2015, with the Mattamy Athletic Centre and The Country Club playing host June 10-11.
Long-time NHL executive Jim Gregory, Olympic gold medal and World Cup-winning head coach Pat Quinn and eight-time Stanley Cup champion Serge Savard have been announced as Distinguished Honourees to the Order of Hockey in Canada for 2015.
The rink at the Regent Park Athletic Grounds was well used but in need of a major makeover. Thanks in part to funds from the 2012 Hockey Canada Foundation Celebrity Classic, residents now have a safer place to skate, and a refurbished field house to call home.
Calgary is home to an organization that will help thousands of youngsters play hockey in southern Alberta. Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank will help address a major hurdle that keeps many kids out of sports – the cost of equipment.
Hockey season has come early for 37 young players in Richmond, B.C. The Hockey Canada Foundation’s Dreams Come True program visited the Lower Mainland on Aug. 23, bringing brand-new equipment and registration fees.
