Das Cows are a team rich in history, culture and experience. Our mottos of “leave no cow behind” and “moo” represent our strong team culture and work ethic. These cows have silky mitts, quick edges, poise and dirty sauce. Das Cows are coming to an ODR near you, Feb 2019. See you out there – moo.

We’re here to raise some money and drink some beer and it looks like we’re all out of beer….
Taylor Kimmett (C)
We are Team Cochrane Napa, built up from employees and customers wanting to support the community. This is a great event with an even better cause and we can’t wait to be part of it! Our team is comprised of several tournament veterans who have lost in the Rec final 2 years in a row and are desperate to get their names on the cup!
We are a bunch of friends from all over Alberta coming together for a good cause and a weekend of hockey and lots of laughs.
Ryan Pharis (C)
DJ’s Red Wings
Just a group of hockey players that want to play a little 3 on 3 and have fun.
Doug Krebes (C)
Greasy Hoof Burners
A team of great people and good hockey players. We, as a team, never played together, however sure to enjoy ourselves with some laughs and hopefully a few goals. We have all played pretty good hockey growing up but first time entering a tournament growing up. We have one player who may join, Sheldon Skamers, as we are waiting on the last player of our team, Brett Pennett ,who is trying to get the dates off from working. So our team isn’t completely finalized but hopefully should be soon. We are all excited to playing in this tournament as it is a great cause and a great time playing Canada’s game.
Nathan Hannah (C)
We are a new Kimmett Cup Team. Some of us have played in previous years, but have started a new team. We are a group of friends and colleagues who are for the most part Cochrane locals and parents. We are excited and honoured to be taking part in this well organized charity event. Lets hope for some fantastic weather!!
Jodi Reade (C)
Family and friends from Calgary and Cochrane.

Narwhals are majestic tusked whales, we are not.
The francophone school is back in this amazing community event. It’s so great to share our love of the game with everyone. Our 5 years, we getting slower but we having more experience now…
Alexandre Paradis (C)
We are just a bunch of guys (and gals) who like to play together. Third year that we participate in this incredible hockey tournament. We are proud of representing École NDV.
Nicolas Brisebois (C)
We started the Powderhorn Pistol’s as a fun local beer team in Bragg Creek, thanks to the owner Rose Dallyn. Our goal was to enjoy some light hearted and fun outdoor games on our little local rink, have some fires, have some brews, and basically have a blast with like-minded hockey peeps. We are a tight knit groups of friends who have played hockey together over the last few years, and really enjoy the sport whether it’s competitive or recreational. We love our local Powderhorn Saloon and can’t wait to play on the bar’s behalf during this tourney, and to meet a bunch of other rad hockey players!

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 11 years ago at the first Kimmett Cup: Two families with a passion for the “ Best Game You Can Name “. Ten 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. Coaching your kids and friends is one thing. Playing with them is quite another. 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 basket. 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.

Pucks & Popsicles
What do you get when a scientist, a police officer and some pediatric nurses get together to play some ODR?? You get Pucks & Popsicles peeps!! We are fortunate to work in professions where we get to help people, and hopefully make a difference in the lives of so many others. We are excited to lace them up, and support such a great cause!
Trish Dubyk (C)
Pucks in Deep
We’re a team of some family, some neighbours and some friends thrown together for this great cause. This is our first year in the Cup and we’re thrilled to be involved and excited to get our butts kicked.
Josh Clark (C)
Looking forward to another year of typical Pylon hockey that includes no back checking or “extra effort” BUT lots of laughter.
Ian Kruger (C)
Team Old School
We are a mixture of hockey players/wannabe hockey players that love the game! Most importantly, though, we are here for Lindsay Leigh because this was her game. Our team is called, “Team Old School” because there are members on the team that knew Lindsay through our school years where memories will never be forgotten. We are going to battle hard and play the game like Lindsay’s favourite team the “FLAMES” and destroy all of our opponents!
Glori Crerar (C)
We’re Unreal! Well… maybe not that unreal on the ice… However, we are unreal in high five giving ability, joke telling ability, after game beverage drinking ability and raising money for Children’s Wish Foundation!!! You may not see our names on the trophy at the end of the tournament, but we are going to have an UNREAL time at Kimmett Cup 11!!
Scott Erven (C)
The Jets have been around since KC 1 and are happy to be back for KC 11!! Were older and wiser (?) and will be much sorer on Monday following. We are all very proud to be part of such a great cause that contributes back in so many ways to those less fortunate.
Thanks Kimmett’s, and to Reid, Joe, and Jason for all the hard work you put in – and to everyone else involved in this great event.

Tofield Fighting Snowgeese
Following in the footsteps of another failed GM from a little bit north of Cochrane, the long time Tofield Fighting Snowgeese GM was relieved of his scouting duties over the summer and replaced by his very capable Cochrane based assistant. The roster has been completely gutted but, unlike the other Alberta team to the north, has no Connor McDavid. Hopefully the purge of nearly all Tofield content is what it takes to get the Geese over the hump this year. We look forward to finding out.
Recreational Division 2
We are the ACH Avengers. We are an awesome team of nurses, residents, pediatricians, and family members! No secrets on this team; not very many of us are aspiring Sidney Crosbys or Alexander Ovechkins. But what we do have is star player, Owen Gallant! He’s the guy we look to when we need the clutch power play goal in the 3rd period, or big hit on open ice on the opposing team’s ringer!!
All of us Avengers do have one important thing in common, though, and It’s that we play hard and we play with heart! Many of us work at the Alberta Children’s hospital each and every day, and we are all so excited to be a part of Kimmett Cup 11 this year.
Keep your stick on the ice.

Angels Among Us
‘Angels Among Us’ can mean many things to all of us, and as such I have been inspired with the name. There are many Angels Among Us, such as Joe, Jason and Reid, the Kimmett Family, and Friends, and the Kimmett Cup Family of friends and volunteers! All are Angels at work ‘doing’, to encourage, lift up and support the Special Angels Among Us, for those we can do something about now 🙂
The Wish Angels and their families are Angels who demonstrate courage, faith, love, perseverance, and strength, all emblematic of Kimmett Cup, and the way Lindsay played the game of hockey and life!
Past, Present and Future Wish Angel Children and Families are thrust into situations that we can all partner with now, stand in the gap with them, and be there when they need us most!
We all have a story of our Angels Among Us, such as, giving us an opportunity to sew seed into the lives of the Wish Children and their Families. We can do something for them now; provide encouragement to celebrate the life of a Loved One Angel who is dearly missed by us and family and friends; and gather together corporately as a Kimmett Cup Family to encourage one another, making a difference, past, present, and into the future. Let’s play, celebrate and have too much fun!

Chicks with Sticks
An awesome group of women who love playing Canada’s favourite game. Our first time playing in Kimmett Cup but certainly not our last!
Katherine Cox (C)
Team HP Sauce has been participating in Kimmett Cup since 2015; it is a weekend we all look forward to. Our team is made up of mostly Holmberg (H!) family members and Pearcy (P!) family members, two families who have been life long friends. Team HP Sauce is excited for this year’s tournament and look forward to many more to come!
Katie Holmberg (C)
Maybe we Should Try Knitting
Our story is simple. Maybe we should try knitting is a team made up of a group of ladies that love to play soccer. We have all battled with various injuries due to our active lifestyle but keep pushing through to do what we love! We are attempting to be hockey players for the Kimmett cup, and after we should probably take up knitting while we recover!

This proud bunch of border breachers has been smugglin’ for centuries, long before the days of booze totin’ rum runners. But pucks haven’t always been their cargo of choice, no sir. Instead they got their start moving suitcases full of mighty mallards – yes, genuine Canadian ducks – across the 49th parallel. With the underground duck trade in full force business was booming, and the Smugglers soon became America’s #1 fowl trade partner. Everything was dandy, superb even, until their neighbours to the South came to a harsh realization in the mid 1900’s: ducks smuggle themselves across the border annually, flapping their wings furiously to avoid the harsh Canadian winter! Thwarted by mallard instinct, the Smugglers were doomed. About to close shop, their fortunes reversed when a peculiar order form from a misinformed buyer arrived at the office. As they opened the letter they saw a request that would change their lives forever…
“I hereby demand 500 of your finest pucks, in short order!”
Andrew Woods (C)
After some tough losses in 2018, Ramrod guaranteed they’d be back in 2019 stronger than ever. After an offseason of zero practices and the loss of arguably their best player, Ramrod is looking to other avenues to fulfill their guarantee…. voodoo.

Soft Dump in the Corner
Our team is made mostly of tournament rookies. The ones of us that are returning again for another year are so excited to show the newbies what this tournament is all about!
Melissa Braybrook (C)
Our team comes from northern Alberta, 4 1/2 hours north of Edmonton. We are a youth pond hockey team with 20 members, girls and boys, who enjoy the game of hockey. This will be our 3rd attendance at the Kimmett Cup and we are very eager and excited to be part of this tournament again this season.
Derrick Brochu (C)
We Are Family
We Are Family are back for our 11th year of Kimmett Cup. We are a strange mix of a team – creepy old guys and young women, not usually a recipe for success! We do make it work though with 2 Rec Division championships in 10 years although our age has dropped us into the non-comp rec division as the old guys cannot survive another long playoff run. As always we will play in Lindsay’s name as a family of great friends. We wish all a fantastic KC weekend and let’s all do it for the children!!
Kelly Kimmett (C)
Clear the track here come The Zambronies! Complete with brawn and brains, this team is a force to be reckoned with. We are all here to have fun and support the amazing charity that is The Children’s Wish Foundation.
ACH Dream Catchers
We are the ACH Dream Catchers; a team of nurses, RTs, Residents, Wish Kids, friends and family excited to ignite our spirits and burn bright on the ice and off of it as we have a monumental time and raise money and awareness for Children’s Wish! See you on the ice!
Stephanie Hall (C)
We are a team of passionate ACH players excited to advocate for our patients on the ice and raise money for a great cause off of it! We will be paying tribute to our friend and passionate Kimmett Cup Wish Ambassador, Tristan Garrett…
“”Giving back is one of the best things you can do. It is truly amazing the power that kindness can have. There are no words to describe the power of kindness” — Tristan Garrett
Deborah Fruitman-Power (C)
We are the ACH Kings; a team of RTs, friends and family excited to ignite our spirits and burn bright on the ice and off of it as we have a monumental time and raise money and awareness for Children’s Wish! See you on the ice!
Aaron Rothery (C)
We are the team of Pediatric Residents, staff, family and friends and a very special wish family – The Gallants! We may not have any hockey experience behind us, and staying balanced on our skates will prove to be challenging, but we come excited and ready for this year’s Kimmett Cup! Working at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, we have the absolute pleasure of interacting with children and their loving families. Although we are early in our training, something has become clear to us very quickly. No matter how many medications we prescribe, we will never be able to match the therapeutic power of making a child smile.
Jason Baserman, one of our incredible colleagues and tournament organizers, has given us the opportunity to do just that. Through competing in the Kimmett Cup, we can contribute to granting a child their very own wish and that is a pretty amazing feeling! The passion and energy Jason has put behind this tournament has inspired us all to become a part of it as well. Whether it is a trip to Disneyworld, or recording a song for the radio, we are proud to join the Calgary community in making dreams come true. Just don’t expect us to make the hockey highlight reel.
See you on the ice!

BGC Strike & Dip
BGC is back on the ice in 2019 for their fourth Kimmett Cup and is looking to be a presence in the fun division with some new additions to the all-star team! To geology enthusiasts like us, strike and dip are useful terms to describe rock. To this BGC squad, strike describes the unpredictable shooting ability of the offence, while dip describes the expected decrease in the opponents scoring when coming up against this team’s rag tag defense. This untested new team of rookies and vets is likely to be full of surprises and is looking forward to having some fun and supporting a great cause.
Shelby DeMars (C)
Bippity Boppity Boos
We bring the power of a wish to the ice! With our magic wands (AKA…Hockey Sticks) we will skate for our passion, to grant Wishes that WILL come true!
Welcome team Children’s Wish Foundation – Bippity Boppity Boos!
April Stallings (C)
The Cottage Crusaders are a mighty team of Children’s Cottage staff and volunteers.

Half Hitch Brewing
We brew beer better than we skate. You’ll agree when you see us on the ice.
Britt Kozloski (C)
OnGrowing Works is a cadre of inspired craftsmen that innovate, support and lead the standard for sustainable construction business services. We build to last and to leave lasting impressions.
Raymond Vincent (C)
Our Team is called Next Generation because it is a bunch of “next generation Kimmetts”. Lindsay’s Niece and 2 Nephews are excited to be a part of her legacy!
This team also has some extended family of Lindsay’s!
We have been skating together for a number of years now and are always excited to lace up for such a great cause!
Jocelyn Kimmett (C)
Raucous Rotary Relics
Our team is comprised of fun people from the Rotary Club of Cochrane.
Dean Rask (C)
We’re a bunch of hockey crazy Koreans. This is our fourth Kimmett Cup, and we look forward to this every year.

Two Pharmacy Drug Runners
The Two Pharmacy Drug Runners return to take another crack at winning the elusive (and nonexistent) Kimmett Cup Fun Division Championship. The team features newcomer to the Kimmett Cup, hockey…and skating, Adriana Fridfinnson. Returning are the former ‘youth movement’ of the team, and now savvy veterans Max & Ella Kruger, and Marley & Sadie Crawford. The team is anchored (literally) by Ian Kruger and Reid Kimmett.
It is an honour to play in Lindsay’s memory each year at the Kimmett Cup. We look forward to being a part of the Spirit of the Kimmett Cup in 2019.
Reid Kimmett (C)
Winners of All Games
“Winner of All Games!“
An extravagant claim, to be sure.
Still, no one would have doubted Lindsay’s sincerity when she proclaimed it after winning a game. In the fun division, everyone is a winner so well be able to make this boast with the same confidence Lindsay did.
Joe MacLellan (C)
