A Saturday Night Celebration! Dec. 12 – 8 PM
This Saturday Night December 12th will be a special night for the JDA Kings organization and for a couple of former Kings, Nolan Trudeau and Corey Wamsteeker. The team will be retiring the jerseys #15 and #22, that were worn by these two former players and two of the most prolific point getters in NWJHL history. This will mark the first time that this honor has ever been bestowed upon any King or previously GP Wheeler players.
Nolan played two full seasons with the Kings as a forward in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 after playing a season in the KIJHL and the two seasons prior to that with the Sexsmith Vipers from 2008-2010. Nolan also spent a year after his final season on the ice behind the bench as an assistant coach with the club.
Forward Corey Wamsteeker pulled on a Kings jerseys for three and a half seasons from 2011-2015 and in that time period became the league’s leading point producer of all time based on recent records for the NWJHL. Corey is currently an assistant coach with the team.
Please come out to the Crosslink County Sportsplex on Saturday night and help us honor and congratulate Nolan and Corey on their fantastic careers! The ceremony will begin at 8pm sharp so get to the rink early and remember the Players Bench Lounge is always open.
