The wounds have somewhat healed since the end of our season last weekend after we were defeated in Double OT in Lacombe in Game 5. Bentley was crowned as the League Champions after winning the series by a total of four games to one and will represent the Pacific Region at the Allan Cup in Steinbach, MB next week.
It was a difficult pill to swallow, but the boys left it all out on the ice and can be proud of what was accomplished in the 2015-16 season. This season can be looked upon as a great beginning of recreating the pride and expectations around the Hockey Club, which has been one of the most successful organizations in the country. We will take the positive momentum from the successes this year, and will continue to hold ourselves to the highest of standards in an effort to return to our winning ways next season.
On behalf of the entire organization, we would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all of our volunteers, fans and sponsors. Without the unwavering support from the entire Town of Stony Plain and the Parkland County, this season would not have been able to be as successful as it was.
We would also like to extend a thank you to our players, who were committed and sacrificed a great deal throughout the season. Along with the individual players, we would like to thank their families and support systems, who also sacrificed holidays and weekends to allow their husbands, dads, and brothers, to put on a show for the fans.
Thank you to everyone involved, and we look forward to seeing you all around the rink for the 2016-17 campaign. Enjoy the summer!
