Jasper Hockey Camp Starts July 27th, Celebrating 19 Years!

Greg Pallister, Coach Development Coordinator, and I made a quick trip to Jasper last week. What a great day! Always enjoy seeing our Jasper friends!

Shirley, the gracious cook who has fed us all at the Jasper Hockey Camp for 20 years including Kevin Putnam and Jared Waldo, the two responsible for starting us on the amazing Kraft Hockeyville adventure. Thank you Shirley!

Pete Bridge, the Arena Manager and is indeed the Master ice maker.  He also assists Mike Craig with many NHL special events where ice making is involved. Pete also helped Mike with the Heritage Classic in Vancouver this past season, and helped Dan with the 2010 Olympic Games. You just know it’s the best ice around!

The Kraft Hockeyville Cup just had to visit the Jasper Bear, and get it’s picture taken with the Banff and Jasper Park entrance signs. Looking forward to doing the new Glacier Skywalk during camp week!

It was a great day! Thanks Greg for the company and the chats. Excited to have you on board!
