Team Alberta Sledge Hockey
Published Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Alberta Sledge is proud to announce the 15 player roster for the Provincial Sledge Hockey Team that will represent Alberta for the 2015-2016 season.

The roster was finalized following a two-day selection camp at Wetaskiwin Twin Arenas in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. The camp included a skills evaluation and two intrasquad games. A total of 24 players were in contention for the coveted 15 roster spots.

During the camp, Steve Arsenault (Canadian Men’s Sledge Hockey Team member, 2013 World Champion and 2014 Paralympic Bronze Medalist) reflected from his past 3 seasons of coaching experience and is "planning on adhering to my coaching philosophy involves an outstanding work ethic at its core foundation along with exceptionally strong team structure and [an] emphasis on discipline. The foundation created for success: ‘Out work, out smart, out play’".

Alberta’s roster includes two goaltenders, four defensemen and nine forwards. Head coach Steve Arsenault (Spruce Grove, AB) assembled the roster with support from associate coach Kieran Block (Edmonton, AB), and team manager Dean Krawec (St. Albert, AB).

As the team roster was established, Dean Krawec stated that with him being "involved in sledge hockey, in Alberta, since 1998 as a player, coach, and manager with the Edmonton Sled Hockey Club (ESHC); and [now] having a rostered Team Alberta squad is something that I have wanted to have happen since 1998. [This is truly] a dream come true for me as a sledge hockey historian in Alberta. It shows that we have the depth in numbers … and also the quality of players to make a high performance team to take to the National Championships being hosted in Leduc, Alberta on May 13 – 15, 2016".

For more information on the Provincial Sledge Hockey Team and Sledge Hockey Alberta, please contact Dean Krawec, Team Manager, at or follow us through social media at and
