Media Advisory - Local kids play pond hockey with the Edmonton Oil Kings



    EDMONTON, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Members of the media are invited to attend an
ENMAX Pond Hockey game featuring two Leduc Atom minor hockey teams and the
Edmonton Oil Kings.
    "Pond Hockey by ENMAX Energy" brings mentors and hockey celebrities into
Alberta communities, creates memories and helps keep the Canadian winter
tradition of pond hockey strong.
    Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Pond Hockey by ENMAX Energy matches
Atom level players, aged nine to 10, with their local heroes from the Western
Hockey League for a short skill drill session and a game of shinny.
    Since the program began in 1999, more than 3,700 kids from across the
province have participated in Pond Hockey by ENMAX Energy. This year, the
program expects to reach over 1,000 young hockey stars!
    ENMAX relies on its strong partnerships with its partners and communities
to make these memorable events happen. Players from the Calgary Hitmen,

special appearances in the Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer and Lethbridge
communities during the 2008/2009 season.
