After two years Coach Paul Maclean has decided to move on to a new challenge. Think you have the skill to coach a Junior "A" hockey team? Send in your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Dryden Ice Dogs Junior "A" hockey team would like to thank all the fans, sponsors, season ticket holders, volunteers and billet families. Without the generous support of the local businesses and the people of Dryden we would not be the longest running team in the SIJHL league. Thank you! Each of you is important to the team and we couldn't do it without you!
Thank you to the players for a great season. All best to those continuing on in their hockey careers
The Dryden Ice Dogs will be hosting their annual awards banquet on Friday, March 21. It will take place at the Best Western Hotel and Conference Centre from 5-9 pm. It is free to all to attend and there will be pizza! We will be asking for donations to help off-set the cost of the food.
Please come out and join us and see who will win this year's awards!
This event is also an opportunity for the team to thank our sponsors and fans that have supported us this season. Without YOU there would not be Junior A hockey in Dryden. THANK YOU!
The DASH FOR CASH, at our game against the Thunder Bay North Stars last night, saw 10 contestants walk away with a total of $1947.00. There were 2 participants representing New Prospect School, and another 2 representing the Youth Impact Group. The money they picked up, along with a portion of the advance ticket sales, will be going towards their projects this spring.
The remaining contestants were drawn from the audience.
The club is looking forward to doing this again next year, and hopes more of the area schools and youth groups will be participating.
The club also gave away 4 registrations to our summer hockey school in August. Check your next ad-bag for more information, or download the registration form from our website. Spaces are filling up and you
don’t want to miss out.

Thank you to all that came out to the Dryden Ice Dogs Military Game in support of the area's Cadets. It is an honour and of great importance for the team to recognize the sacrifices that our Veterans have made. A local mother who has a son in Afghanistan dropped the puck. A jersey was also presented to the Dryden Legion. Thank you to Canadian Tire for sponsoring the Jerseys. The team spent Remembrance Day at the Legion for the ceremony and proceeded to the Cenotaph to lay our wreath.
The Dryden Ice Dogs are selling hockey hoodies with hockey laces. The hoody is of superior quality and is pre-washed so will not shrink. Orders must be pre-ordered and paid for by November 22 so they will arrive in time for Christmas. Adult hoodies are $80 and youth are $75. If you can't make a game call Maria at 807-937-2738 and she will be happy to take your information. At every game we also have t-shirts, baseball caps and toques. A great stocking stuffer is a flex pass to our games or a few game day tickets.
