Our History

Strasbourg and District

by Scott Frizzell

Strasbourg Minor Hockey has enjoyed many years of success and has supplied the fans of ice hockey with many years of enjoyment and excitement. Many players have left Strasbourg Minor Hockey to pursue hockey careers by moving onto Midget AAA, Junior A, University, Semi Pro and NHL ranks. Included in the following list are players who reached many of these milestones in their hockey careers. With many of their families living in the area these players have always called Strasbourg and district home and would say that Strasbourg Minor Hockey is where they got their start. Some played in the old natural ice arena in downtown Strasbourg and some played in the new arena while, some had the pleasure of playing in both. Many players have moved and others have come back but they continue to give whatever they can to support Strasbourg Minor Hockey.

There also have been many DEDICATED volunteer coaches and staff that have put in many rewarding hours to help develop our young hockey players and help them meet their goals and dreams.
