    EDMONTON, Jan. 9 /CNW/ - Media representatives are invited to attend the
ninth season opening of "Pond Hockey by ENMAX Energy" on Wednesday, January 9.
This fun and exciting grassroots program offers local community children at
the atom level (ages 9 to 10 years) the chance to learn game enhancing skills
and to take to the ice with their local heroes in pursuit of their hockey
dreams. Leo the Lion (the Edmonton Oil Kings mascot), players from the Oil
Kings, Minor Hockey coaches and ENMAX representatives will be at Sherwood
Park's Strathcona Athletic Park to kick off the new season.
    This season, ENMAX Energy Corporation's popular children's hockey program
will visit 17 communities throughout Alberta, providing young Alberta hockey
players with the opportunity to skate alongside WHL or NHL hockey celebrities.
    "Pond Hockey by ENMAX Energy" continues to play an important role in the
