Up and down weekend for Icedogs

Slave Lake’s Junior ‘A’ team stole a game from High Prairie on Friday. Outshot 53 – 25, they made the most of their chances, beating the Redwings 7 – 4. Sunday back in High Prairie the wheels fell off.


Ken Giblin passes at 81

Ken Giblin, who owned Century 21 Realty in Slave Lake along with his wife Barb, died earlier this month at the age of 81.
Following a career in the RCMP, Giblin and his wife chose Slave Lake as the place they wanted to do business and started the Century 21 firm in the late 1980s or early 1990s.


So…what’s new with the Icedogs?

Not much, and that may be a good thing. Yes, says team owner Lauren Barr, it sucks that there are only three teams in the league. But what’s good about it is the teams are fairly even, the scores are close and the situation competitive. No 20 – 1 games and the like, which would put sustainability into question.
