The Minor Hockey teams from Drumheller did very well this season and should be proud to have made it as far as they did.

 "We had all the teams make the playoffs that was a success throughout the levels.  Two teams made Provincials, the Novice A won banners, the Bantam team won three banners, so it was good. A couple teams made their banner finals, they didn't win in the end but still an accomplishment making it that far," said Cawiezel.

For most players, this is not the end of the season as most are off to hockey camps in the summer and training for the next season.  

There was a special award given for most sportsman-like player on and off the ice, and Carter Drouin was the Minor Hockey recipient of this coveted Bob Pugh Award.

"It's an award given to the Atom age player that demonstrates sportsmanship on and off the ice, dedication to the teammates," explained Cawielzel. "Bob Pugh was a former referee within Drum Minor Hockey and it was an award that the family has come up with and would be presented on behalf of the referees on his behalf."

They also held their Annual General Meeting for association on March 27th.

"Unfortunately we didn't have any elections.  Everybody was in by acclimation this year," explained President Lyle Cawiezel.  "We have five returning board members and five new board members to go forward. There were no real pressing issues, so it was a relatively quiet AGM."

With the closing of a successful season for Minor Hockey in the Valley for the 2018-2019 season, it doesn't mean it is a time to relax. Planning is already well on its way for the 2019/2020 season.
