Cold Lake and Marwayne/Dewberry named Hockey Provincials hosts

Hockey Alberta’s announcement of Provincials locations included a couple of Lakeland area communities on Friday.

Cold Lake was drawn as the host for U18 Female B Provincials from March 31-April 3. That same weekend, U13 Tier 3 Provincials will be hosted in Marwayne and Dewberry.

The decision means Hockey Alberta is intending of having the first sets of Provincials in over two years.

For the first time, zone playdowns will not be used to determine the qualifying teams. Rather, participating teams for provincial championship tournaments will be determined through league playoffs.
