Since our formation in 1999, the Cold Lake Ice have become a force to be reckoned with in the North Eastern Alberta Junior B Hockey League.
The Ice have traveled all over the province and have even faced teams from as far as Thunder Bay, ON along with the Chinese national hockey team. Last Season, we were honoured to have been chosen to host the prestigious Keystone Cup, which saw six of the top teams from northern Ontario to British Columbia compete in a four-day western Canadian championship.
Our home arena is Imperial Oil Place, located inside Cold Lake’s Energy Centre. With a capacity of 3,000 plus fans, and an NHL-sized ice surface, Imperial Oil Place sets the stage for fast-paced, intense hockey that keeps fans of all ages on the edge of their seats.
The Cold Lake Ice is a team of hard working and dedicated men who train hard to play their sport of choice. Together with the support of the Community, our organization is very proud to watch as these players develop and progress throughout the seasons.
With our 2016-17 upon us, we are very excited to see what is to come. We have set our sights high and we look forward to a great season together with our local fans!
See you at the rink!
ABOUT OUR CITY
The Ice have called the City of Cold Lake “home” for 16 years. A picturesque city of approximately 15,000 residents, the City of Cold Lake is located roughly 3 hours northeast of the City of Edmonton.
In addition to being known for its championship hockey team, the City is also remembered for its many oil fields, Canadian Air Force Base 4 Wing and its namesake, Cold Lake.
On the shores of one of Alberta’s largest lakes, Cold Lake itself is a tourism hot-spot for sport-fishing, boating and outdoor enthusiasts. With pristine waters, it nears the top of the list for best lake trout fishing in the province.
As the “home of the fighter pilot” 4 Wing prides themselves on being one of the country’s busiest fighter bases. Each year, forces from around the world descend on Cold Lake to take part in the world-renowned training exercise Maple Flag.
A cornerstone in Canada’s oil industry, the City of Cold Lake boasts the country’s largest and longest-running in-situ operations, which are run by Imperial Oil. Osum, another major player in the oil industry, has also set up shop in Cold Lake with two oil projects nearby.
