Alberta First Nation makes top 10 for Kraft Hockeyville contest

Thursday, March 9, 2017

First Nations community Maskwacis has been chosen as a top 10 finalist for the Kraft Hockeyville contest. If chosen as the winner, the community will receive $100,000 to upgrade the Neyaskweyahk Arena and get to host a pre-season NHL game. Hockey is so popular in Maskwacis that a few years ago a second rink had to be built to accommodate the 235 players from the community, said Ermineskin Chief Randy Ermineskin, who submitted the application to Kraft.
