Asian Heritage Month - Celebrating the Legacies of Greatness

Each May, we celebrate Asian Heritage Month. Throughout the month, Hockey Alberta reflects on the many achievements and contributions of Albertans of Asian heritage who, throughout our history, have done so much to make hockey the game we know and love.

To celebrate this year’s theme, “Continuing a legacy of greatness,” we first must look back at the legacies of those before us, including Larry Kwong. Born in Vernon, B.C., Kwong quickly became an offensive phenom for the Vernon Hyrdophones at 16 years old. As his skills heightened, so did the impact of World War II. Kwong put his dreams on hold to enlist in the army. His basic training stationed him in Red Deer, where he played for the army’s Red Deer Wheelers. As his comrades were sent overseas, Kwong was instructed to stay in Red Deer to play hockey to entertain the troops. During this time, he found himself facing off against NHL’ers and holding his own. Little did he know, his dreams were in motion. Kwong, a trailblazer for Chinese-Canadian players became the first player of Asian heritage and the first person of colour to play in the NHL. Kwong played his first and last shift in the league on March 13, 1948, but he opened the gate for many to follow, like Steve Tsujiura of Coaldale.

Though he never played in the NHL, Tsujiura put up impressive numbers and received several WHL awards to catch the eyes of the professional scouts. In 1981, he was chosen in the 10th round of the 1981 NHL draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. Tsujiura’s professional career spanned over 14 seasons in the AHL and in leagues overseas in Switzerland and Italy. Prior to the 1998 Winter Olympic Games, he was extended an invitation to represent Japan on the national stage. Following the Games, Tsujiura retired from playing to take on the role of head coach of the Japanese National Team. Tsujiura saw the coaching position as an opportunity to stay in the game, something he took advantage of for four seasons before retiring from the game completely.

Similar to Tsujiura, Kassy Betinol’s Olympic debut came in 2022 with the Chinese Women’s National Team. The Okotoks native received an invitation to centralize with Team China because of her Chinese heritage. Betinol became a fixture on Team Alberta growing up and played in the Okanagan in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League before earning a scholarship to Minnesota-Duluth University. After a rookie NCAA season cut short due to COVID-19, Betinol received an invitation to Canada’s National Women’s Development Team 2020 Summer Camp. After spending her 2021-22 season with the Chinese National Team, Betinol will return for another season at Minnesota-Duluth before looking for professional opportunities. She credits her Team Alberta experience for aiding in her development in a organized and professional environment to set her up in the success she has achieved thus far in her career.

The Team Alberta program is constructed to develop not only the players, but support staff as well, which is what trainer Alex Le was looking for when he volunteered. Le, of Calgary, has volunteered with Hockey Alberta on several occasions, including as the U16 Equipment Manager and Trainer in 2015 and 2016. Joining the Northwest Calgary Athletics Association as the trainer for the Midget A Bruins in 2007, Le was looking to learn and grow when he began volunteering with Hockey Alberta. Also an employee of Hockey Alberta’s long-time partner and supporter, ATB Financial, Le concludes that ATB is here to support Albertans through everything, just like Hockey Alberta.

Kwong, Tsujiura, Betinol and Le have stamped their mark on the game in their own way. Reflecting on their legacies, we will look to the next generations of Asian-Canadians to continue the legacy of greatness on the sport of hockey.

Gavin Harrison stood on the back door to tap in goal number two and Connor Nickle capitalized on the powerplay to make it 3-0 after the first. In the second period, Domonic Neville struck again for North Grey to add another. Nearly five minutes into the third period, Adam Cutting scored on the powerplay to get North Blue on the board. Looking for the comeback, Landan Horiachka posted two back-to-back to make it a one goal game. But it was Neville who added the insurance goal to seal North Grey the championship.

Championship Sunday’s schedule shook out to be a battle of the regions at the Prospects Cup, as each region faced-off in their final games of the tournament.

To start the day, Capital Royal got their first win over Capital Green with a score of 5-2 to finish seventh overall.

Rec Hockey Model - providing affordable opportunities for hockey

Hockey Alberta’s new Recreational Hockey Model is entering its second year of ensuring that families have access to affordable, fun, and safe opportunities to participate in youth hockey with a low time commitment.

Hockey Alberta’s Recreational Hockey Model provides participants with a moderately structured stream of hockey with modified playing rules, limited registration rules and no residency requirements.

As a sanctioned organization/ program within Hockey Alberta, a group has the flexibility to create and maintain its own internal processes to ensure their programming meets the needs of the participants.

And as an incentive for the 2022-2023 season, any program not previously registered with Hockey Alberta that wishes to register a Recreational Hockey Program will be eligible for a reduced rate per participant (players & team officials) for their first season.

Hockey Alberta will be hosting a Recreational Hockey Model Open House on Wednesday, May 18 at 7:30 pm via Zoom. If you have questions, or want to know more about how the Recreational Hockey Model could work for your organization, make sure you attend this session.

REGISTER NOW FOR OPEN HOUSE >

The Recreational Hockey Model consists of three (3) streams of hockey, and organizations can choose the stream that makes the most sense for their participants. Each stream offers a varied competitive structure and level of commitment appropriate to the level(s) and age(s) of the participant(s).

When programs are sanctioned under the Recreational Hockey Model, organizers and participants also enjoy an extensive list of benefits, which include:

  • Medical and Dental Insurance Coverage for registered participants (players, officials, team officials)
  • Directors and Officers Liability Insurance coverage for your Executives and Volunteers.
  • Administration and Operational Support from Hockey Alberta staff.
  • Player and Coach Development support from Hockey Alberta Regional Managers.
  • Support and policy guidance regarding Risk and Conduct Management protocols and processes (screening, complaint handling, Maltreatment, Abuse and Harassment, etc.)
  • Access to Hockey Alberta certified officials.
  • Plus much more..

If your organization is ready to join our already 50+ sanctioned programs and 5000+ participants, please fill out the Recreational Hockey Program Application.

Alberta Cup comes full circle for former pro Duncan Milroy

RED DEER - Former Montreal Canadiens draft pick Duncan Milroy left his mark on the Alberta Cup as a player back in 1998, and is hoping to do the same as a coach over two decades later.

Milroy set the (then) all-time Alberta Cup record for goals in a single tournament with Team Northeast in 1998 with 10, and still sits in second behind Devin Setoguchi, who notched 11 in 2002 with Team South.

After being selected in the second round of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens, the Edmonton native went on to enjoy a 10 year professional career with in the American Hockey League, and in Europe.

Now, he’s turned his focus to coaching, and made his Alberta Cup coaching debut in 2022 as an Assistant Coach with Team Alberta Yellow, where he hopes to pass on the knowledge of his past experiences to the next generation of athletes.
