The Lloydminster U13 Blazers have won the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup.

The Blazers were unveiled as champions for the 2021-22 season during Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday night. They will receive $100,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice—Inclusion Lloydminster—among other prizes.

This is the first time an all-girls team has won the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup and it is the first time a team from Alberta has won the grand prize.

After learning a team parent’s wheelchair could not access the timekeeping box at their arena in Lloydminster, the Blazers set out to learn more about accessibility at their local rinks. The U13 team also hosted a ‘Try Para Hockey’ event to bring athletes of all abilities together on the ice.

In addition, the Blazers are advocating for a new rink that is barrier-free and accessible for para hockey.

Lloydminster was one of 12 regional finalists for this year’s Chevrolet Good Geed Cup. The other 11 regional champions will receive $2,000 to their charity of their choice.

At the Blazers’ celebration event, Ross Ulmer from Lloydminster dealership Ulmer Chevrolet surprised the team by matching the $100,000 grand prize with a donation to support Inclusion Canada, Inclusion Lloydminster’s national chapter.

This was the sixth season Chevrolet and Hockey Canada came together to award the Good Deeds Cup, which searches for the U11, U13 or U15 team that makes the biggest impact in its community. This year the theme was ‘Shift Change,’ with teams encouraged to choose Good Deeds that would make hockey more inclusive than ever.
