“There are so many people from our province who have made outstanding contributions to this great game that choosing the inductee class each year is always difficult. With such a rich hockey history in Saskatchewan, we know we once again have a superb class to announce,” stated SHHOF Board of Director Co-Chairs Blair Davidson and Jack Brodsky.
Each year, the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame celebrates the contributions and achievements of players, builders, teams, officials and those at the grassroots level. The annual induction dinner is rotated around the province in partnership with the Saskatchewan Hockey Association to showcase the hall, celebrate local inductees while proceeds benefit the local host community. This year the event will bring financial support to the Weyburn Red Wings Junior Hockey Team.
The announcement of the event and the 2016 SHHOF Class of Inductees took place on Saturday January 16th at the Weyburn Red Wings game as part of Cameco Hockey Day in Saskatchewan celebrations taking place across the province.
