Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman - 1922-2009
January 12, 2009

It is with a heavy heart that Hockey Canada recognizes the passing of Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman, who died on Sunday, January 11 in Calgary.

Seaman, along with his brother B.J. and Harley Hotchkiss, was a co-founder of the Seaman Hotchkiss Hockey Foundation (formerly Flames Project 75), which was incorporated in 1984 to commemorate the 75th birthday of the province of Alberta. Since its inception, the Seaman Hotchkiss Hockey Foundation has contributed more than $5 million to support minor hockey development initiatives for Hockey Canada and other organizations across Canada, as well as a number of other Alberta charities.

Born in Rouleau, Saskatchewan, Seaman was a part-owner of the Calgary Flames from 1980, when he and five other investors helped moved the team from Atlanta to Alberta. He won a Stanley Cup with the Flames in 1989, and continued as a part-owner until his death.

Seaman co-founded Bow Valley Industries, an international oil and gas company, in 1949, running the company until selling it in 1992. He was president and chairman of Dox Investments, a private holding company, and served on the boards of several public companies.

Among his other accomplishments include induction into the Alberta Order of Excellence, Canadian Oilman’s Hall of Fame, Saskatchewan Oilman’s Hall of Fame, Alberta Sports Hall of Fame, Calgary Business Hall of Fame and Order of Canada.

The Western Hockey League annually awards the Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman Trophy, given to the league’s top scholastic player.

Hockey Canada sends its condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Seaman.
