Every hockey player knows their athletic career was made up of far more than game days and practices. It was built from early morning car pools, trips to the ER, weekly physiotherapist appointments, and pre-game panic attacks over where they’ve misplaced their lucky socks.
In short to succeed in hockey, players need more than just talent; they need the support of their family and their community.
ATB Financial has teamed up with Edmonton Oilers’ forward Jordan Eberle and Calgary Flames’ captain Mark Giordano, to honour the individuals that won’t get a Stanley Cup ring, but are responsible for those who might.
From coaches to volunteers and organizers to parents; they want to recognise the Home Ice Heroes who are responsible for the energy, atmosphere and seamless planning that keeps the game going across the province.
If you know of a Home Ice Hero who deserves to be recognized, nominate them online and they could win one of five Advantage Packages worth $5,000.
From peewees trying out their first set of skates, to the pros and everyone in between; ATB’s team is in the stands, cheering and fundraising for athletes across the province.
