Another successful season has wrapped up for Hughenden Minor Hockey. Players greatly appreciate the huge commitment in volunteer time of the coaches, directors, managers and general executive that enable them to play the sport that they love. Over the summer parents need to be reflecting upon a suitable candidate for the President position of Hughenden Minor Hockey. We also greatly appreciate the support of the community and business sponsorship in enabling our organization to provide organized physical activity for youth. At the end of the season an appreciation and celebration evening was held at the hall. The generosity of Shelter Valley, who provided the burgers for the evening, was greatly appreciated.

This year’s midget team consisted of 16 players from Hughenden and Hardisty. The team was coached by Derek Johnson, Justin Eldering and Wyman Pederson. They had a very busy year playing a total of 42 games including pre-season, league, provincials and playoffs. The team attended the provincial tournament in Beaverlodge where they had 3 close games, winning one and losing two. In the North Central League regular season we had a record of 18-1-3, finishing first overall. We finished the year with an exciting double overtime win at home over Red Deer, the second double overtime win in the series to win the league championship! We wish Shelton Southoff, who played his last year of minor hockey, good luck with his post-secondary plans.

The Peewees main coach was Wade Lomheim, with assistance also from Stacy Swanson, Derek Johnson, Dustin Small and Peter Dyck. There were 12 players on the team. They won the Tri-City Tournament, earned second place in the Viking Tournament, finished in first place in the NCHMA League Tier 4, with a record of 17 wins and 3 losses.

The Atom level Hughenden Jets played in the tier 3 division of the NCMHA. We finished the regular season in first place with a 15-1-2 record. Our playoff run had many hard fought battles which found our team in the league finals. The Championship Series went down to game 3 of 3, which our team lost by a score of 4-3. It was a disappointing end, but still a very rewarding season. Appreciation is extended to our coaches Quentin Motley, Corey Johnson and Brandon Penman.

Our Novice team had a fun year, with each player improving immensely over the season. Coach Wade Lomheim called it a building year and the team will be great next season. Good work team.

The initiation level was a fun team to be around. They were coached by Kevin Elliott, Lucas Almberg and others that lent a helping hand when needed. The players learned lots, tried hard and most of all had fun. The majority of the players were in their last year of initiation. They were expected to help the younger kids by leading by example. The initiation team had a successful year and was very competitive in league play. We hope to see everyone out again next year.
