Flood of nominations for Wilkie for Kraft Hockeyville 2017

As of the end of the day, Thursday, January 19, there were already 63 nominations in for Wilkie to become Kraft’s next Hockeyville. With the title comes the opportunity to host an NHL pre-season game in the fall and $100,000 for arena upgrades.

With only 112 nominations in total for Saskatchewan communities, over half of them are for Wilkie!

Keep those nominations going – the more we get, the more likely it is that the Kraft Hockeyville people will sit up and take notice.

Wilkie Outlaws play at home

The Wilkie Outlaws were happy to be playing to a hometown crowd again, at home, in the arena in the Saskcan Community Centre in Wilkie, Saskatchewan. This was their first game in Wilkie since the provincial playoffs in the spring of 2015. The lobby was still off limits due to continuing construction but that didn’t stop fans from attending and cheering on the hometown team.

(The next home game is Friday, January 6, when the Biggar Nationals come to town. Game time is 8:30 pm.)

Below, shots from second period action in the game against the Kindersley Red Lions, which the Outlaws won 9-0. Jared Herle had the shutout for the home team.
