Who Are the Dryden GM Ice Dogs?
The Dryden GM Ice Dogs are one of the SIJHL’s charter teams, and have established a tradition as being one of the top teams in the league.
They won the first ever league championship and posted finishes of at least third in the league in season play in all but one of their seasons to date. The Dryden GM Ice Dogs are fresh off winning their fourth Bill Salonen Cup championship defeating the Thunder Bay North Stars.
Following their 2017/18 Bill Salonen Cup championship, the Dryden GM Ice Dogs represented the SIJHL as they hosted the 2017/18 Dudley-Hewitt Cup championship in Dryden. The Ice Dogs did not disappoint as they made it to the Dudley-Hewitt Cup final where they faced the Wellington Dukes.
The Dryden GM Ice Dogs take deep pride in being a community owned and operated team. The teams success depends on the countless hours put in by the many volunteers who fill numerous roles. The community of Dryden stands behind their team and that is shown by the impressive crowds we get at our home games. There is nothing better than the feeling you get playing in front of a packed Dog Pound and the roar of the horn when a goal is scored.
The Dryden GM Ice Dogs, on average, play 56 regular season games with 27 of those being at home and can play as many as 14 playoff games (maximum of 8 being at home).
Our players are regularly seen through out the community helping in impactful and positive ways, the foremost being regular school visits and helping out with local minor hockey teams. As players on a community based team it is important to set a good example and be encouraging role models for our youth as it is the youth who aspire to be future Dryden GM Ice Dogs.
The 2018/19 season is shaping up to be another exciting one for our organization. With the focus on creating a dynasty, our priority is to once again Keep Bill Home with our motto being #3peat and #DIDdynasty. We look forward to seeing you in the Dog Pound.
The Dryden GM Ice Dogs play at the Dryden Memorial Arena, and have games broadcast on CKDR 92.7FM, Dryden’s local radio station and all games are lived streamed via HockeyTV.com.
