Mi­nor hockey sea­son is un­der­way and the Rap­tors are on the ice and play­ing well.

Pres­i­dent of the Drum- heller Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion Lyle Caw­iezel says reg­is­tra­tion was strong once again this year, at about the pace as last sea­son.

All the coaches are in place, and there are two teams at all age lev­els with the ex­cep­tion of Mid­get and Ban­tam where there is only one team at each level.

“The Novice and Atom teams are smaller, but they are a good size so the play­ers are on the ice a lot and they are get­ting good de­vel­op­ment in games,” said Caw­iezel.

This week­end is the fi­nal tier­ing round for the league. This will de­ter­mine at what level each hockey team will play, match­ing the teams at com­pete lev­els.

“We are just wait­ing for that to shake out,” said Caw­iezel.

Af­ter that, the reg­u­lar sea­son will be un­der­way. same

The Rap­tors are back on the ice for the 2017-2018 sea­son and are fin­ish­ing up their tier­ing round this week­end.
