Alberta South Black defeats North Grey to win Peewee Prospects 2017

Stettler’s Brent Kranzler was one of the assistant coaches of Alberta South Black, as the team defeated favourites, North Grey in the final, 4-1 to win the Peewee Prospects 2017 on Sunday, May 14 in Lethbridge.

Hockey Alberta holds the Peewee Prospects Cup every two years, which ices the top 2004-born hockey players in the province.

“After a slow start to the tournament, with one win, one loss and one tie in round robin, we snuck into the semi-final through a tie breaker,” Kranzler said. “In the semi-final, we played Edmonton Green and won 6-2, which put us into the final battle against North Grey.”

Kranzler said that it was a great experience for him.

“The talent, commitment, and dedication the players had were unreal, and the five days the team had together in Lethbridge created close bonds and friendships,” Kranzler added. “It really wasn’t just the on-ice experiences that were terrific, the off-ice activities and watching 20 players turn into 20 brothers was also impressive.”

According to Kranzler, the cup will be delivered to Stettler for him to have for two weeks to share with family and friends.

“Hockey Alberta gives every player and coach on the team an opportunity to experience the victory by rotating the cup amongst all of them,” Kranzler commented. “I’d like to thank all the players, their parents, coaches and Hockey Alberta/Team Alberta for this whole experience and opportunity. And a huge thank you to my loving wife Danee and four boys Reece, Carter, Bo and Tate for letting me do what I love the most.”
