Friday, January 19 was a night of hockey to remember at the West Central Events Centre.

Even with the Kindersley U11 Klipper tournament getting underway, and a theme night at the Kindersley Kodiaks game versus the Luseland Mallards; there was no doubt that the Kindersley U18 Klippers stole the story of the weekend.

After one of the U18 Klippers players lost their family home to a fire earlier in the week, U18 organizers came together to lend a helping hand.


WestCentralOnline reached out to the U18 Klippers coordinator for a follow-up on the night's proceeds.

"It was a great turn out, the 50/50 raised $650, and we had a donation jar set out." 

The 50/50 winner was local, but chose to stay anonymous, donating his winnings back to the family. Individuals attending the U11 tournament added to the donations, as well as some Kodiaks and Mallards fans.

"We have an amazing hockey family." the team coordinator shared, with a huge thank-you to Sarah and Trent Benjaminson from ALB Oilfield Services for guaranteeing the 50/50 for $500.

The game itself couldn't have gone much better for the home-side. Tyler Kozicki scored two first period goals to put the Klippers up early over the league leading Outlook Ice Hawks, and didn't look back winning the game with a final score of 2-0.
