Sting looking to help

submitted by Sturgeon Sting

Our Hockey team is comprised of 19 males ranging in age from 15 to 17 years and [we] are from various communities in and around the Sturgeon County Area (Morinville/Legal/Gibbons/St.Albert/Boyle/Athabasca).

The team was looking for a way to give back to the community. After a little thought we decided to host a food drive and Christmas toy drive. The project will take place during two of our home games in December: Dec 11 in Morinville (game starts at 7 p.m. and Dec. 12 in Legal (game starts at 5:15 p.m.)

Donate to a great cause and have a chance to win a pair of Oilers tickets. All food and toys will be donated to the local food banks and communities to give back to those less fortunate.

Come out and enjoy fast paced exciting game of Hockey.

Jr & Sr results

by Morinville News Staff


The Morinville Kings had two road games last week, a Friday night road trip to take on the Daysland Northstars and a Saturday night on-the-road outing against the Whitecourt Wild. In the first of the two games, Daysland pounded the Kings 11-1. The club’s only goal was by Keagan Arcand from Dalen Paul mid-way through the middle frame.

Results from Saturday night’s road game were still not posted online by our press deadline Sunday. The Kings travel to Slave Lake Dec. 5 and return home Dec. 12 to face Toefield.


The Morinville Jets were one for two last week. The club fell 6-3 on the road Nov. 25 to the North Edmonton Red Wings but toppled the Beverly Warriors 4-2 at home Friday night. The Jets made a road trip to take on the Edmonton Mustangs Sunday night.

Results were not available by our deadline. The win and loss brought the Jets to a 9-12-0 record this season.
The Jets have two games this week, a road game against the Flyers Friday night and a home-ice contest against the Regals Sunday. Game time for Sunday, Dec. 6 is 6:45 p.m.

UPDATE – Jets lost to Mustangs 8-7 Sunday night.
