Despite some uncertainty and trepidation leading up to game day, Kimmett Cup 2022 was a complete success. We kept participants safe while raising a lot of money for some great causes. Twenty-five teams and 227 players competed for this year’s Kimmett Cup. When the final horn sounded and the champions hoisted the Cup, over $130,000 had been raised. This is truly a monumental accomplishment considering the limitations posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thank you to all the players, volunteers, and sponsors who make the Kimmett Cup a success year after year.

Team Stories and Rosters
The Cruisers are back for their 13th Cup, bringing with them a losing tradition which will likely continue this year. That being said, with the acquisition of the ‘Cousin Line’ featuring Lindsay’s young, spry and talented cousins who have been instructed to avoid line changes, the Cruisers may stand a chance. If not, we’ll just have a few beers and raise a couple bucks.

We are a group of caring individuals who like to give back to the community and who enjoy the sport of hockey. We love supporting worthy causes, and the doing that while playing the sport we all love is a win-win scenario.

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Shooters shoot. YOLO. No Regretzkys!
Team compiled of mostly Garmin Canada employees (+ a few family & friends) looking to support a great cause in our local community, have a good time, and ~*maybe*~ defend our recreational title win from 2020 😉

Puck : A round , vulcanized piece of rubber that all hockey nuts dream of taking end to end & putting it top shelf or five hole or wherever Mama keeps the peanut butter
Junkies : People like us who are hooked on Pond Hockey
The Puck Junkies started 12 years ago at the first Kimmett Cup: Two families with a passion for the “Best Game You Can Name”. Eleven Kimmett Cups later, many more families, friends and kids have become part of the Puck Junkie story. We are all here for the same reason: A chance to play out our Pond Hockey passion with our kids and friends. Regardless of age, gender or ability, the thrill of competition and the satisfaction of being part of a team is the same. And maybe if you’re good enough and the Hockey Gods are on your side, you get to sip from the Shottie Stick (Yeah Baby!)
But the reward doesn’t just come from a Win. It comes many times all through the game: That “Wow” moment when a teammate or even an opposing player makes a sick move and puts the biscuit in the net. Or the tick -tack -toe passing play. Or maybe the poke check that broke up the 3 on 1 and saved a goal. The laughs when we screw up.
There’s usually some pain along the way too: The gasping-for-air feeling after a shift too long. A whack on the shin by a puck or errant stick. Or when your skate catches a crack and you splat on the ice? All part of Pond Hockey. All part of why we love the game. You pay a price but it’s always worth it.
And along the way something very special happens: You get a chance to be part of making something special happen. You get hooked. It’s contagious. You feel it: How much fun it is to work with old friends and new friends to make the Kimmett Cup happen. Yeah it’s a lot of work but you almost feel honoured to be a part of it. And then we see what fantastic things we accomplish when we work together: The smiles and stories from the Children’s Wish kids. How much it means to their brothers and sisters and Moms and Dads when a wish is granted.
Thank you Lindsay for the way you lived your life. It’s what the Kimmett Cup is all about.

Tofield Fighting Snowgeese
After using the year-off to dry out their clothes from Kimmett Cup 2020, the Tofield Fighting Snowgeese are pumped to be back at it again in 2022. The Tofield / Cochrane ratio has been changed dramatically for the 2022 offering but here’s hoping that the Cochrane based geese have more fight than their Tofield predecessors!

We Are Family
We Are Family is back for its third attempt at playing Kimmett Cup 13. We are a combination of a few families ranging in age from late 20’s to late 60’s. It is our sincere hope that all Kimmett Cup teams will be playing their hearts out on the ice but even more importantly doing their absolute best to boost the fundraising for Make A Wish. This is really the purpose of the tournament and always has been – doing great things in Lindsay’s name. See you at The Cup!

The Peregrine Falcons are a team named after the local artisan glassware business: Peregrine Glassworks. We are a new flock that migrated together from Cochrane and Calgary. We are a mix of Kimmett Cup returners and newbies. This fledgling team looks to take flight at this year’s Kimmett Cup with fun, laughter and some memory-building moments mixed in.

We are a group of people that have always wanted to play in the Kimmett Cub but never got organized until this year. We are friends and family with two things in common. We love outdoor ice/snow sports and our K-9 friends.

The Dumanators moto is “FAMILY FUN”. Looking forward to a lot of laughs when we all get together. Could have a little competitive blood running through our veins, but don’t let that think that we all can play hockey. We come from all sorts of backgrounds, soccer players, lacrosse player, figure skater, golfers oh and ya we have a couple of hockey players, we love our sports. So with that being said lets have some fun and laughs and raise some money for a great cause.
Kim Dumanowski (C)
The Two Pharmacy team returns to the ice to once again celebrate Lindsay, her life and legacy. We have a fresh roster in search of climbing to heights this franchise has not yet reached on the ice. Win, lose or draw, we look forward to ‘seizing the day’ together.
