Nearly 20 years ago, John Kerr made a bet for $1,000.00 with a friend, who is a rabid Calgary Flames fan, that the Edmonton Oilers would win a Stanley Cup again before the Flames ever would. It seems both of their money is still safe for the time being.
Edmonton is still a hockey town. From underprivileged kids getting their first pair of skates, to the dedicated parents, coaches, referees, and rink caretakers – Edmontonians are doing their part to keep the national sport alive. In the TELUS myEdmonton special presentation: Hockey In Edmonton, we take a journey into the heart and soul of the game to meet the people who keep our rinks and sport on the ice. The goal of these vivid and affectionate portraits is to offer up a rare inside look at the game of hockey and capture the essence of the sport and what it means to those who love it.
