“SaskEnergy continues to be proud of this initiative where we have partnered with the Western Hockey League to send rural minor hockey teams to see exciting live WHL hockey action,” said Shannon Doka, Community Involvement Leader, SaskEnergy. “This contest has created a unique teambuilding opportunity since it began in 2010.”

The contest is held in conjunction with SaskEnergy Hockey Weekend which will be holding its 7th annual province-wide event from January 17th to 19th, 2014. SaskEnergy Hockey Weekend celebrates hockey in Saskatchewan by ensuring local rinks and community volunteers receive support to keep the game alive for generations to come in communities large and small across the province.
