With Christmas and New Year’s out of the way, minor hockey has resumed and teams are on home ice and the road. It’s been a pretty strong season so far for all of the Stettler minor hockey teams, according to President Trevor Speakman.

“We’re a little over half done, and should be starting playoffs at the end of January and early February,” he said. “A good majority of our teams look like they’ll make it.”

It’s been a competitive and challenging year for the teams, a fact with which Speakman is happy.

“Our teams got tiered pretty competitively this year,” he said. “All of our girls are on the top of their leagues. It’s good when our kids are challenged.”

While there are still a few provincial bids floating around, 2016-17 looks like it may be a provincial-less year for Stettler in the way of hosting. If so, it will be the first time in several years a provincial hockey tournament hasn’t been hosted in Stettler.

Here’s a round up of Stettler’s Minor Hockey action.

AtomThe Stettler Atom C Kal Tire Storm headed to Sylvan Lake on Saturday, Jan. 7 where they lost against home team Sylvan Lake (Black) 9-1. The following day found the team in Carstairs, where they defeated Carstairs 4-1.

PeeweeOn Saturday, Jan. 7, the Stettler Peewee A Dairy Queen Storm were in Delburne, where they won 6-2.

Sunday saw the Stettler B Kinsmen Storm host RMAA, where they blanked the team with an 8-0 win.

The Stettler Female Storm headed to Camrose on Sunday, but results were not available by press time.

BantamStettler ScotiaBank Storm headed to Hannah on Saturday, Jan. 7, where they narrowly lost 5-4 to the home team. On Sunday, they hosted the 3Cs in Stettler, where the game ended in a 4-4 tie.
