Hockey Alberta Invites 28 Athletes to Team Alberta Under-18 Female Fall Camp

RED DEER – Twenty-eight athletes have been selected to attend the Team Alberta Female Fall Camp.

Three goaltenders, nine defence and 16 forwards are contending for a roster position on Team Alberta Under-18 Female.

Team Alberta Under-18 Female Fall Camp Invites >

“Our staff is confident in these 28 players that we have selected for the next step in our process as they have demonstrated the ability to consistently execute our style of play, concepts and habits,” said Chris Leeming, Head Coach of Team Alberta Under-18 Female. “Because of this, we are excited to continue working with this group, with the expectation that they will present us with some difficult decisions moving forward.”

Athletes will be evaluated at the Fall Camp, September 22-24, in Edmonton, where they will participate in on and off-ice sessions and face-off against three women’s teams of the USports hockey league. Following the camp, athletes will continue to be evaluated with their club teams.

Team Alberta Under-18 Female, fueled by Gatorade, is scheduled to compete at the National Women’s Under-18 Championship, November 5-11 in Dawson Creek, B.C.


AAA and AA Male & Female Tryout List Update

Following the removal of the Notification of Tryout procedure for AA and AAA hockey at the beginning of the 2022-23 season, Hockey Alberta has continued to review the tryout notification and player listing process, attempting to balance ease of registration for players while still ensuring a player’s resident Minor Hockey Association is aware of a player’s whereabouts throughout the tryout period.

For the 2023-24 season, Hockey Alberta has created a AA/AAA Tryout List online spreadsheet and posted it on the overview page of the Hockey Alberta Centre Ice Portal so that all registrars and minor hockey association presidents can access a live, singular database for players pursuing AAA and AA Male and Female tryouts during the 2023-24 hockey season.

Associations hosting AAA and AA Male and Female tryouts will be expected to upload the list of players registered for their tryouts to this spreadsheet according to the instructions outlined on the first tab of the spreadsheet. Associations hosting tryouts must upload all players attending tryouts, including those whose resident MHA is the same MHA hosting tryouts (ie: St. Albert MHA must upload all players from Barrhead, CR Knights, AND St. Albert for their U15 and U17 AAA tryout list) as the AA and Elite Male and Female Committees will use the information to assess Draw Zone/Recruitment Area engagement and health.

By each Tuesday afternoon between August 1 and October 1, associations will be required to use the legend provided on each sheet to update the players as they progress from in tryouts, to being released, to making teams or pursuing second tryouts. This will allow associations not hosting tryouts to keep up to date on where players that fall within their resident boundaries are located throughout the tryout process. Associations must fill out all columns on the spreadsheet.

By sorting the Resident MHA or Tryout Team columns alphabetically, any association can easily locate all players from a given minor hockey association or trying out for a given team. Using the legend they can then determine where players are located in the tryout process.

Associations may begin inputting tryout information immediately after reading through all instructions.

For any questions, please contact

Volt Hockey: the Game Everyone can Play

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta is giving everyone an opportunity to play the game we love, through Volt Hockey.

An adaptation of the game of hockey, Volt Hockey is played three versus three, on a court in specially designed power chairs that are battery operated and controlled with a joystick. The modified version of the game allows for participants with limited upper mobility, to play hockey.

“To play Volt Hockey you only need to have some hand function to operate the chairs, just like a typical power chair,” said Jacey Gamroth, Volt Hockey Program Coordinator. “It’s great for individuals with CP, muscular dystrophy, or higher spinal cord injuries.”

Operating in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray, each community has nine power chairs, allowing for over 100 individuals of all ages, across the province, to try Volt Hockey throughout the last year.

“Volt Hockey is very inclusive as it puts everyone on an even playing field. Even someone who’s not living with a disability and is an able-bodied person can come out to play,” said Gamroth.

There are three seasons that run throughout the year, September-December, January-April and May-June. During the summer months, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta holds “Try-it” days and camps for participants.

For the second year in a row, Variety - the Children’s Charity of Alberta is taking a team to the World Cup in Sweden. In 2022, Alberta and Ontario represented Canada at the first ever Volt Hockey World Cup in Sweden. The 2023 tournament takes place September 15-17 in Gävle, Sweden.

To outfit one team with equipment, it costs about $70,000, so Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta relies on grants like the Hockey Alberta Foundation’s Every Kid Every Community Grant to support the program.

“Grants like Every Kid Every Community support us in making this program accessible to more kids,” said Gamroth. “Volt hockey is a very expensive sport to run and without grants like Every Kid Every Community, we wouldn’t be able to supply the equipment or run the Volt hockey program at all.”

To learn more about Volt Hockey, how to get involved and how to support the program, visit or contact [email protected].

The Hockey Alberta Foundation is proud to support organizations like Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta and Volt Hockey through the Every Kid Every Community program to help youth across the province experience hockey.

Thirty-Two Athletes named to Team Alberta Under-16 Male Shortlist

RED DEER – Hockey Alberta is one step closer to naming the Under-16 Male team that will represent the province at the WHL Cup in October.

There are 32 athletes in contention to compete at the tournament. The shortlist includes four goaltenders, 10 defence and 18 forwards.

Team Alberta Under-16 Male Shortlist Roster >

Athletes were selected to the shortlist based on their overall play throughout the Team Alberta scouting process, past Team Alberta programs, and at the Under-16 Summer Camp in Red Deer, July 3-9. Eighty players were invited to Red Deer and worked through high intensity on-ice sessions, as well as off-ice training and classroom sessions.

“Alberta has a lot of talented players in this age group, we saw it at the Alberta Cup and we saw it at summer camp,” said James Poole, Head Coach of Team Alberta Under-16 Male. “We’re constructing a team that can compete at an elite level in short-term competition, the decisions don’t get easier and now it’s up to these 32 players to show us why they belong in the jersey.”

Team Alberta, fueled by Gatorade, is slated to compete at the WHL Cup, October 17-22 in Red Deer, against Team B.C., Team Saskatchewan and Team Manitoba.

CANMORE – Six individuals and the teams comprising a “decade of excellence” in women’s hockey were inducted into the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame on Sunday evening.

The Class of 2023 features three former National Hockey League players (including two Stanley Cup champions), an official who worked nationally and internationally in her 34-year career, a long-time volunteer and builder of U18 AAA hockey, the first Black hockey player to sign an NHL contract, and the best women’s hockey club in Alberta between 1983 and 1993.

Charlie Huddy, Tim Hunter, Earl Ingarfield Sr., Karen Kost, Bobby Olynyk, John Utendale and the Edmonton Chimos were enshrined in Alberta’s hockey history during the AHHF Gala at the Coast Hotel in Canmore.

The Gala was hosted by Hockey Alberta and the Hockey Alberta Foundation. Ryan Leslie, NHL host on Sportsnet, was the emcee for the evening.

As the inductees were recognized, many memories and stories were shared, but a common theme in their acceptance speeches was the importance of family and others around them in the success the inductees enjoyed during their careers.


Charlie Huddy was one of seven Edmonton Oilers to be a member of all five of the franchise’s Stanley Cup winning teams (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1990), and the NHL’s first recipient of the Plus/Minor Award in 1983. He played for 11 seasons and then served as an assistant coach for 23 years in the NHL.

Charlie recalled how he wasn’t drafted in 1979, and that he really got lucky because his outstanding career with the Oilers started when they offered him a $5,000 signing bonus.

“You don’t win that many Stanley Cups without a lot of great teammates over the years,” Huddy said, also reflecting on the coaches behind the bench – Glen Sather, Ted Green and John Muckler.


Tim Hunter spent more than four decades in the NHL and WHL as a player and coach, helping bring a new focus to smart technology to the sport. In 1989, he lifted the Stanley Cup with the Calgary Flames and continues his engagement in the community as an active alumnus.

He opened by reminding everyone that the adage that it takes a community to raise a child also applies to hockey players, and that he had a lot of help along the way. In addition to his family, the sacrifices made by his parents, and his “adopted” family, the Hamiltons, he had humorous thank yous for a couple of members of the AHHF induction committee.

He thanked Peter Maher for making his 10 second shifts sound impressive on Flames broadcasts, and Mike Rogers for operating a hockey school that he attended between the ages of 10-12 years


Earl Ingarfield Sr. played in the NHL for 13 seasons, including being the first player selected in the Pittsburgh Penguins expansion draft. In retirement, Earl scouted and coached with the New York Islanders.

Earl was unable to attend, and was represented by his daughter Rae Anne Thrall, and grandchildren Amara Thrall and Ralph Thrall IV. Ralph talked about how without the support Earl’s family and teammates, none of this would have been possible.

“He is an amazing person and has been a great role model for all of us,” said Ralph.


Karen Kost spent 34 years as an official and leader in training and mentoring officials across Alberta and Canada. Karen worked almost every level of hockey nationally and internationally.

She recalled how, at 14, she convinced her mother to let her get into competitive sports in the Peterborough, ON area, and then, a few years later after moving to Calgary, she was the only female in her officiating clinic in Calgary.

“I’ve been surrounded by tremendous and encouraging individuals,” said Kost, including a number officials leaders in the province such as Ed Yee, Jim Rutherford, Ernie Boruk, John Jacobs, Curtis Nichols, George McCorry, and Dave Ganley.


Bobby Olynyk (Bobby O) remains a dedicated volunteer in the game after nearly 60 years. He is well known for his role as a builder and leader of what is now known as the Alberta Elite Hockey League U18 AAA division.

“I’m standing here tonight because of many others. The players I coached, their parents, managers, club administrators,” he said, along with many others including league governors, business people who have supported his scholarship golf tournament, and, of course, his family.

Bobby also shared a lot of memories from his six decades in the sport – including a 1971 fire that burned down the arena in the middle of a playoff game where John Davidson was and the aftermath of the 2010 Olympics when Hayley Wickenheiser acknowledged the Alberta Midget Hockey League for exhibition games played against the national team in preparation for the Olympics.


John Utendale was the first Black hockey player to sign an NHL contract. While he never played in the NHL, John was a trailblazer in the game in Canada and United States. He was the first Black member of the U.S. men’s coaching staff as a member of the “Miracle on Ice” Olympic champions in 1980.

John, who died in 2006, was represented by his wife Mickey and son Robb Utendale. Robb reflected on recent accolades that have been bestowed on his father, including being honoured by the Washington State Legislature, the Seattle Kraken, and Western Washington Athletics Hall of Fame.

“But this one seems the most appropriate because our family is all Albertans,” said Robb.

He also pointed to the key role played by his mother in John’s career, as she worked full time in support of John’s career, and his career after hockey which included earning three post-secondary degrees.

“She held down the fort with two young boys at home. It was the full dedication of my mother that allows my father to get recognized tonight,” said Robb.

EDMONTON CHIMOS – A decade of excellence – 1983-93

The Edmonton Chimos club was the longest running Senior Women’s AAA hockey program in Alberta. But the organization’s 1983-1993 era was unparalleled, as the Chimos captured every Hockey Alberta Provincial Championship (Senior A, Female AA, Female AAA) and three Abby Hoffman Cup National Women’s championships (1984, 1985, 1992).

Shirley Cameron recalled the key volunteer roles played by the coaches, assistant coaches and trainers, who not only didn’t get paid, but covered their own expenses.

She also paid tribute to the decade of Chimos teams from 1973-83, who set the foundation for the decade of excellence.

“They are the women who forged the path. They set the direction for this team to be as successful as we were, and I hope we passed that on to the next decade of Chimos teams,” said Cameron.

In addition to the recognition of the class of 2023, the inaugural recipient of the Robert Clark Legacy Award was announced – Don Gatto.

Gatto served as President of Hockey Alberta (1992-93) and was the first-ever chair of the Hockey Alberta Foundation. He is a Life Member of Hockey Alberta and an Honoured Member of the AHHF (class of 2007). His hockey involvement also included work at the national level as chair of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association Minor Council, and at the local level where he volunteered as a coach and for 11 years and served as the Director of Crossfield and District Minor Hockey.

Gatto was named Lethbridge’s Kinsmen Sports Person of the Year in 1998, and has been involved with numerous Lethbridge sports organizations, including the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame, University of Lethbridge Hockey Alumni, Lethbridge Sports Council, and the Lethbridge Hockey Hounds, helping raise over $1 million for hockey groups in southern Alberta.

Everyone needs a Budd

Ryley Budd was selected as Hockey Alberta’s 2023 Player of the Year presented by ATB.

During the 2022-23 season, the 15 year old from Calgary struck a deal with EnerCorp. For every save he made through the regular season, $1 would be donated to charity and an extra $10 for every shutout.

After posting 686 saves and two shutouts for the Calgary Northstars, Budd raised $700 for HEROS Hockey. The funds were used to send a young HEROS’ goalie to Ontario for his first tournament.

When EnerCorp learned more about HEROS Hockey and what the donation was being used for, they increased the donation to $5,000. This contributed to sending the whole team to the tournament.

As Budd looks to the next season, he hopes to continue the initiative to help get more kids on the ice through HEROS Hockey.

HEROS Hockey provides free hockey programming for at-risk children and youth. The organization uses the game to teach life-skills that individuals can use beyond the rink. The Hockey Alberta Foundation is a proud supporter of HEROS Hockey.
