A gen­uine Drumheller hockey hero Tony Koll­man was of­fi­cially in­ducted into the Al­berta Hockey Hall of Fame.

The Mail re­ported in March that Koll­man would be se­lected this year. The in­duc­tion took place Sun­day, July 23 in Can­more.

Koll­man had a long ca­reer play­ing for teams in Al­berta, Saskatchewan and the United States, but he made his mark in his 11 years with the Drumheller Min­ers. He was on the le­gendary Al­lan Cup cham­pi­onship team in the 1965-1966 sea­son, and in the next sea­son par­tic­i­pated in the Euro­pean tour. Af­ter his play­ing years were com­plete, he con­tin­ued his in­volve­ment as a coach and was a co-owner of the AJHL Drumheller Fal­cons.

He is among a pres­ti­gious class that in­cluded Glen Sather, women’s coach Mel David­son and the le­gendary Sut­ter fam­ily.
