Dear WHL Alumnus,
In November 2007 the Western Hockey League announced the official formation of the WHL Alumni Association. The WHL Alumni Association will take an active role in assisting with the operation and promotion of the WHL at both the Club and League level. The WHL Alumni Association will provide a medium through which past players, coaches, officials and management personnel can reconnect with former teammates and continue to make a contribution to the growth and development of the WHL.
The WHL Alumni Association is headed by former NHL goaltender and Medicine Hat Tiger, Kelly Hrudey, who will serve as the Association’s first President. Hrudey is joined on the WHL Alumni Association Executive by Dell Chapman, Vice President (Saskatoon/Billings ’73-’78) and Members at Large; Cal Ellerby (Calgary ’77-’79), Daryl Henry (Billings/Nanaimo/Kelowna/Medicine Hat ’81-’84), John Gordon (Victoria ’75-’77), Warren Skorodenski (Calgary ’77-’80), Gable Gross (Kamloops, Regina, Medicine Hat ’97-’02), Jeff Marshall (Regina ’79-’80), Clayton Norris (Medicine Hat ’88-’93) and Ron Sutter (Lethbridge ’80-’83).
Initial plans for the WHL Alumni Association was to establish a database system for Alumni communications and a WHL Alumni Association Speakers’ Bureau to assist the WHL with recruitment and key public messaging.
We encourage all Alumni to join the WHL Alumni Association simply by signing up to our new database. To sign up and for more information on the WHL and WHL Alumni Association visit, www.whl.ca.
