January 14, 2022 – This year we embarked on Esso Minor Hockey Week after a one-year absence from the event. It was incredibly difficult to not participate last year, as it is a minor hockey institution and a fun event to liven up early January of all of us. Despite some uncertainty, we were committed to having this event for the benefit of our athletes. Even though some of our players were unable to compete this year due to illness, the event has been a success and I hope it has served in returning our kids to a place where they can compete, achieve, and celebrate.

The finals are all set now, and we are incredibly proud of the performance for all our Trails West teams, players, and coaches. Trails West placed teams in twenty-six (26) of the U11 and up divisions as well as all four U9 divisions. We have finalists in fourteen (14) of those 26 divisions, including an all-Trails West final in U13 South! All the teams playing in EMHW finals on Saturday, January 15 as listed below. Please join us in celebrating all our accomplishments, for those in the finals and all the others who gave it their all.
