Hockey Alberta, along with its invested stakeholders; Hockey Canada, the Calgary Flames, the Edmonton Oilers and the Western Hockey League, is proud to kick off the Alberta Hockey Summit tonight, August 22, 2013 at the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta.
The event will be kicked off by former NHLer and Hockey Hall of Fame member, Ken Dryden, with a presentation on the history and relevance of hockey to Canadians. The session will included discussions revolving around the past, present and future of hockey and what the stakeholders can do to ensure we stay on the right course.
“Sometimes to move forward, you have to look back a bit and remember where you came from,” said Hockey Alberta’s Senior Manager of Business Development, Scott Robinson. “This summit is about the future, but we really have to learn from the positives and mistakes of the past to forge a new direction.”
The purpose of the three-day summit is to build a shared vision for the game in Alberta, align key stakeholders around a common purpose and ensure Alberta remains a world leader in Hockey Leadership and Development for years to come.
