Cameco Hockey Day in Saskatchewan is going north in January and the communities of Shellbrook and Pinehouse will be in the spotlight after winning the right to host the annual celebration.
In Shellbrook, the local organizing committee hopes to raise $100,000 to help purchase a new ice plant. The community of 1,500 people will host events from Jan. 16-22, including:
In Pinehouse – a community of 1,500 people located more than 500 kilometres north of Saskatoon – the focus will be on skill development for 90 minor hockey players on Jan. 21. Two highlight games will follow on the afternoon of Jan. 22:
Having two host communities is a first for Cameco Hockey Day and the inclusion of Pinehouse means that the event is going further north than ever before. Cameco Hockey Day is awarded to a different Saskatchewan Hockey Association zone each year. With the northern zone being so large, Cameco and the SHA agreed to involve two host communities this year.

The town of approximately 1200 people hosted the main event on January 16-18, 2015 and raised over $50,000 to make improvements to the local arena. THANK YOU to everyone who made this event so special – the host committee and volunteers in Carnduff, the participating teams (especially the Notre Dame Hounds and Battlefords North Stars), special guests Rod Pedersen, Tiger Williams and Tom Renney, the companies and organizations that provided prizes, products and services, and our incredibly generous new title sponsor Cameco.
