Grande Prairie to host Oilers training camp

This September, professional hockey moves to Grande Prairie, as the Edmonton Oilers relocate training camp for the 2006/2007 NHL season.

The Edmonton Oilers will spend three days conducting on-ice training at the Coca-Cola Arena and the Crystal Centre in Grande Prairie from September 14th – 17th, 2006. A number of special events will also take place during the Oilers visit, including a Hockey Canada Coaches Clinic and the popular Joey Moss Cup intrasquad championship game.

“This is the first time our entire team has visited Grande Prairie, and we can’t wait to paint the city copper and blue,” said Patrick LaForge, President & CEO of the Edmonton Oilers. “The Grande Prairie region has always been a strong supporter of the Oilers, and we’re looking forward to spending a few days preparing for the upcoming NHL season in one of the key communities of Oil Country.”

Grande Prairie Mayor Wayne Ayling says the city will embrace the idea of an Oilers visit. “It will be so exciting to see the City of Grande Prairie turned into Oilerville for three days in September,” Mayor Ayling said. “It’s a hockey fan’s dream. We’re fortunate the Stanley Cup finalists have chosen Grande Prairie as the site of their 2006/2007 training camp.”
