2022 World Junior Championship Cancelled

EDMONTON & RED DEER – On December 29, the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) announced the cancellation of the 2022 World Junior Championship.

The following is a joint statement on behalf Hockey Canada and the IIHF from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, and Luc Tardif, president of the IIHF, in response to the cancellation of the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship.

“Hockey Canada has worked tirelessly since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure it would be equipped to host world-class, international events in a safe and healthy environment. Despite our best efforts, and continually adapting and strengthening protocols, we have unfortunately fallen short of our goal of completing the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship and handing out medals on Jan. 5 due to the challenges of the current COVID-19 landscape. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have always made the health and safety of event participants and the community at large a priority, and given the news that we have encountered positive cases within the World Juniors environment, we understand and support the decision to cancel the remainder of the event. Although we know this is the right decision, we sympathize with all participants who have earned the opportunity to represent their countries on the world stage and that will not be able to realize that dream in its entirety.” - Tom Renney and Scott Smith

“Together with the teams, we came into this event with full confidence in the COVID-19 protocols put in place by the IIHF, the local organizing committee, Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada. The ongoing spread of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant forced us to readjust our protocols almost immediately upon arrival to stay ahead of any potential spread. This included daily testing and the team quarantine requirement when positive cases were confirmed. We owed it to the participating teams to do our best to create the conditions necessary for this event to work. Unfortunately, this was not enough. We now have to take some time and focus on getting all players and team staff back home safely." - Luc Tardif

The following are statements on behalf of Hockey Canada from Dean McIntosh, vice-president of events and properties, and Scott Salmond, senior vice-president of hockey operations.

“The COVID-19 landscape is ever-changing, and since we started planning for the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship, we were confident in the health and safety protocols that were put in place. In working with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Alberta Health, Alberta Health Services and the IIHF, we were confident in our hosting plan, and continued to have ongoing discussions with all stakeholders to ensure our protocols were aligned with the Government of Alberta. Shortly after teams arrived in Canada, health and safety protocols were strengthened and daily testing was implemented to ensure cases of COVID-19 were detected early and to minimize spread to participants and the community. We are disappointed for the participants, volunteers and fans, but this is the right decision given the current situation." - Dean McIntosh

“Today’s news is devastating for the players, coaches and support staff with Canada’s National Junior Team. From the time our group arrived at selection camp, we have been cautious in our approach to ensure we could arrive in Edmonton healthy and eligible to participate in the tournament, but we recognize how difficult it is to maintain a secure environment given the COVID-19 pandemic. Our team has worked hard and made sacrifices to earn the opportunity to represent Canada at the World Juniors, and to potentially play for a gold medal on home ice in front of our fans. We share our disappointment with our fans, the other nine competing teams, and the event staff and volunteers. On behalf of our entire team, we wish to extend our appreciation to the IIHF and the local organizing committee for their time and effort in planning for the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship.” - Scott Salmond

Fans in participating provinces can purchase tickets starting at 9-9:30 a.m. local time (depending on province of purchase) on the day each draw opens for as low as $10 by visiting HockeyCanada.ca/5050.

The winners of each 50/50 draw will take home half of the pot, while the other half will remain in the respective province to be reinvested into grassroots hockey programs that enable more people to get involved in the game and help improve their quality of life through hockey.

All game-worn jerseys can be viewed and bid on at HockeyCanada.ca/Auction, with proceeds from the auction supporting the Hockey Canada Foundation and its commitment to the development and promotion of grassroots hockey and ensuring those who want to play the game are able to participate at any level in their community.

The Ice Barn will serve as the ultimate gathering place for hockey fans in Red Deer from Dec. 26-Jan. 2.

Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup - Shift Change!

The Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup is back! This year the program is rallying the hockey community together to make hockey more inclusive than ever.

Over the last six years, the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup has recognized thousands of players from across Canada for good deeds performed in their communities. In 2021 Canmore’s U13 Eagles finished in the top three nationally in the Good Deeds Cup, earning $5,000 towards supporting Rocky Mountain Adaptive – an organization which removes barriers in sport and recreation for those living with physical and cognitive disabilities.

This season, Hockey Canada/ Hockey Alberta registered U11, U13, or U15 teams can make a shift change to win $100,000 for a Canadian charity by getting more people from all backgrounds and abilities into the game we love, so more people have the chance to play.

Ideas for initiatives include:

  • Making hockey more adaptive.
  • Getting more BIPOC players involved in the game.
  • Getting more young women involved in the game.
  • Making more equipment accessible.

To submit your team’s pitch:

  1. Ensure your hockey team is U11, U13 or U15 and registered with Hockey Canada/ Hockey Alberta.
  2. Rally your team together for a brainstorming session to decide on the best Good Deed to Shift Change in your community. Have your Good Deed approved using the pre-approval form.
  3. Do the Good Deed and rally your community together! Make sure to record the progress. We want to see a 30-60 second video of your Good Deed in action.
  4. After receiving your approval from Hockey Canada, submit your video link and share your entry on your team’s social networks so that we can cheer you on!

Entries submitted by January 6 are eligible for early bird prizes. Deadline for submissions is February 1.

Hockey Alberta Announces Partnership with Lordco Auto Parts

CALGARY, Alta. – Building off an IIHF World Junior Championship partnership, Hockey Alberta welcomes Lordco Auto Parts Ltd as its newest partner. Hockey Canada has announced the auto parts retailer and distributer as their newest national marketing partner.

“In 2021, Hockey Alberta was thrilled to join forces with Lordco Auto Parts and Hockey Canada during the IIHF World Junior Championship for the inaugural Futures Stars program,” said Mike Klass, director of business operations with Hockey Alberta. “We are excited to again join forces with them both for the 2022 World Juniors and expanding our relationship as Lordco brings its reputation of quality and customer service in the auto parts industry to Alberta.”

As a national marketing partner with a three-year agreement through to 2024, Lordco becomes the presenting sponsor of this year’s Road to the World Juniors pre-tournament schedule and owns the rights to the Future Stars digital program presented during the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship.

“Hockey Canada is proud to welcome Lordco Auto Parts to our corporate partner family and as presenting sponsor of the Road to the World Juniors,” said Dana Gladstone, vice-president of partnership strategy and licensing with Hockey Canada. “Since its initial commitment to the World Juniors in 2018-19, Lordco has continued to increase its involvement and support of Hockey Canada. This partnership reaffirms that commitment that also extends to Hockey Alberta. We are excited to welcome Lordco to Canada’s largest team as it continues to support premier international events and national championships every year.”

Hockey Canada first established a partnership with Lordco in 2018 when it was announced as presenting sponsor of the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship and the pre-tournament schedule as part of the Lordco Road to the World Juniors. That support continued two years later when it again was a sponsor of the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship in Edmonton.

“As a Canadian-owned and operated company, Lordco Auto Parts is proud to partner with Hockey Canada,” said Sarah Durant, vice-president of marketing. “We are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to support our country’s most talented players as they compete on the international stage at the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship. Lordco has also supported minor hockey in British Columbia for many years and most recently forged a partnership with Hockey Alberta to do the same. By sharing our company’s core values of loyalty, family and community beyond our core business, we can positively impact the future of young Canadians.”

The auto parts retailer and distributor will also own the rights to all Hockey Canada national events.

Team Alberta to return to NAHC in 2023

EDMONTON – The Indigenous Sport Council of Alberta and Hockey Alberta have made the difficult decision not to send teams to the 2022 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC).

The decision was made to allow both organizations to take the time to build a sustainable program model that will benefit Indigenous youth across Alberta in the years to come. Both organizations thank the NAHC and Aboriginal Sport Circle, and send appreciation to the Membertou NAHC 2022 Host Society for their commitment in organizing the national championships. We look forward to Team Alberta returning to the national championships in 2023.

Team Alberta selection camps for 2023 will take place in late May or early June 2022. More details on date(s) and location(s) will be shared once they are confirmed.

Background

ISCA and Hockey Alberta entered a partnership in 2019 to facilitate the growth and development of Indigenous hockey across Alberta. This partnership included Hockey Alberta operating the Team Alberta Male and Female squads competing at the NAHC. The 2020 and 2021 national championships were cancelled due to COVID-19.

Coach of the Month - Greg Eisler

RED DEER – Hockey Alberta’s Coach of the Month for November, sponsored by Players Bench Team Apparel, is Greg Eisler of Calgary.

Currently the head coach of the Crowfoot U11 D1 Coyotes and an assistant coach of the NWCAA U13 Stamps, Eisler has been coaching for six years.

He began coaching when his son started playing hockey, because it gave him a reason to give back to the game.

“Having great coaches growing up, I wanted to pass along skills I learned. When my son started playing hockey, that gave me the excuse to get back behind the bench,” said Eisler. “I don’t necessarily want to help a player become the best player, but instead push to support all players become their best.”

It’s Eisler’s enthusiasm and philosophy that has made him a stand-out coach. He teaches players about the responsibility and privilege that comes with playing and sets expectations for players to be mentally and physically prepared for both games and practices. Parents believe that it is these outlooks that will make their children not only better hockey players, but better citizens of society as well.

For Eisler, his most memorable moments are seeing players apply practiced skills to success in games. He enjoys seeing kids realize their own potential and watch them grow as players, teammates and individuals.

When he’s not at the rink, he tries to take in as many of his daughter’s ballet performances as he can. In his spare time, Eisler spends his time outdoors hunting and fishing.


The Coach of the Month award is presented every month during the Minor Hockey season, based on nominations submitted to Hockey Alberta.

Minor hockey coaches will be selected throughout the hockey season and will receive a coaching package from Players Bench Team Apparel valued at over $500, which includes a helmet, gloves, track suit, coach bag, puck bag, rink board, and coaching resources.
