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.
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 team’s 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.
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 2021/22 season not only marks the 20th anniversary of the SIJHL, but as well of the Dryden GM Ice Dogs. The Board of Governors of the Dryden GM Ice Dogs always views the task at hand as being about more than just hockey. This year is no exception, and perhaps the most important year yet.
With the support of our sponsors, and fans, our goal for the 2021/22 season is to be a community catalyst for the path forward. To once again provide live entertainment for Dryden, and of course, to win a championship in this 20th season, like we did in the first. We have been here since the start, and now, coming out of the pandemic, we are still here and ready to lead the way back to normal
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.
