On behalf of the Kimmett Cup organizing committee, thank you for everything you’ve done to make Kimmett Cup 9 an overwhelming success.

Together we far surpassed our goal!  The fundraising numbers are $165,000 for the entire tournament reaching our goal of $125,000 to Children’s Wish to complete our $500,000 four year goal granting 50 heartfelt wishes to deserving children.  KidSport will be receiving over $7,000 and the remainder will fund local programs through the Lindsay Leigh Kimmett Memorial FoundationLindsay’s foundation has now contributed over $2,000,000 to local and international initiatives since inception in 2008.

To our Volunteers, thank you for your selfless gift of time, hard work and dedication.
To our Sponsors, thank you for your belief in our cause and for your commitment to our community.
To our Players and Spectators, you gave the day life. Thank you for the memorable games, loud cheers, competing with your hearts on your sleeves as Lindsay did, and great times together!
To our Wish Families, YOU are our inspiration.  Thank you for your heartfelt speeches and for sharing your stories whcih brought tears to our eyes and warmth to our hearts.

Special thanks to our event ambassador and wish recipient, Addison Willis (have fun on your Disney Cruise and make sure to give that dolphin an extra kiss from all of us!) and her fellow wish heroes, Tristan Jones, Owen Gallant, Ryan Smethurst, Aboudi Elouta and Kiptyn Claypool. 

We hosted our inaugural Kimmett Cup Kids Tournament on Sunday Feb. 12th in which 8 Cochrane minor hockey teams from Atom to Peewee competed on Mitford Ponds to raise money for Children’s Wish in memory of Lindsay’s late medical school classmate, Dr. Greg Roberts.  Greg was an amazing father and friend, a compassionate physician and children’s book author.  Congrats to the Purple Panthers who raised over $1500 and are this year’s “Spirit Bear Award” winners (named after Greg’s book S is for Spirit Bear: A British Columbia Alphabet).  You are an incredible example to the next generation.  Kudos!

Thank you again for this incredible tribute to Drs. Lindsay Kimmett & Greg Roberts.  Their spirits continue to show us that together we can make dreams come true, empower kids through sport and always strive to share that never ending gift of hope.  Looking forward to lacing up for a good cause in 2018!

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does”

Yours in service,

We have players coming from Calgary, Camrose, Lethbridge, Chilliwack, Invermere, and even Ottawa this year!! We are very excited to welcome back Ed Schaffer and his abnormally long legs after a two-year hiatus. Can’t wait to lace ‘em up on February 11th once again with great friends and even better cause!

The Outdoor Rink Original Gangsters or The ODR OG’s are a ragtag group of misfits and vagabonds.

Thrashing Humus

As third year competitors, the Thrashing Humus are hoping to climb up the ranks this year after their quarter final finish last year. The team hopes to mimic the aggressive, don’t-back-down attitude of the rooster with a combination of the swift, smooth agility one would see in a tropical fish. With some integral changes to the roster this year, these raging little land-swimmers may be seen as the underdogs. That hasn’t discouraged them, as there has been much chatter amongst these feathered swimmers that this tournament makes miracles happen. They’re hoping that if they can personify the spirit of Kimmett cup, a miracle may happen for them this year too!

Cochrane Cruisers

Our team name is an homage to the Tyke team many of us played on as kids! Nearly 30 years later and not much has changed: Chads still the best, Dayne can skate like the wind, Dave is taking penalties and Ryan & Tay are just trying to keep up. Best part is, we’re all still as good of friends now as we were back then, with a few additions. We’re excited to be a part of granting Addison’s and many others wishes!

Dr. Zanussi’s Zamboni’s

This is a team that does not play games. This crew has two years of Kimmett Cup behind them so they are out for TROUBLE this year. Bridget is the mastermind behind this OPERATION, our coach in hockey and in LIFE. Matt is our lead scorer but definitely does not hold a MONOPOLY on the offensive effort; comparing him to Curtis is like comparing APPLES TO APPLES. We took a RISK with go-getter Joseph but he scored a TICKET TO RIDE and you just can’t CONNECT FOUR better players than Grazyna, Hailey, Trevor, and Jess. Finally, GUESS WHO is joining us this year? None other than Dr. Lauren Zanussi. SORRY!, I know it is probably TABOO to brag about your team in the biography but we are just too excited to hold back.

While our students may think we know everything (and who are we to tell them otherwise), we certainly don’t have the game of hockey down pat. That said, we sure have fun trying and are looking forward to our 3rd Kimmett Cup!

Kind of a Big Deal

As a group inspired to help with a great cause, we are kind of a big deal, like all the teams here. The collective effort of Kimmett Cup has led to a lot of great things, so it seemed fitting to borrow this team name. Greg “Kind of a Big Deal” Roberts was a classmate of Lindsay’s in the University of Calgary medical school class of 2009, a valued hockey player, and the kind of great person you think of as definitely being a big deal. Sadly, we lost Greg this past fall to a long illness.

No Women No Skill

No Women No Skill is proud to be joining the 2017 Kimmett Cup.

As the name implies, without the women on this team, there would be no talent. This motley crew of mainly first timers is led by eight-time Kimmett Cup veteran Amanda (Tings) Tingley. Tings is known for her fierce competitive nature and play making skills. Her patience may be tested this weekend by her rookie team. Next up is Tanielle “Hildy” Garcia, she may look like a figure skater, but don’t let that fool you as her hockey skills will quickly shine through and make you think otherwise. Then we have Julie “Jules” Manna, she is a great goaltender who is looking to put some G notes in the net and show the rest of the team how a goalie scores. Now that we have gotten the talent out of the way, we are going to introduce the other place holders on the team. Starting with returnee Clark “Handangles” Hannon, don’t be fooled by his nickname as the dangles prove useless out on the pond. He also prides himself on his skating ability, but you may find him rolling around on the ice if the conditions are not pristine. Next up, our main attraction Joe “Panda” Chan, if you’ve never seen a panda on ice, here is your chance! Although his shot is one to be reckoned with, his skating skills are questionable and he may resort to giving “bear” hugs, a harmless tactic used to help keep his balance. The side show Dennis “D” Garcia, his main talent will be distracting the other team with his “Ritchie Valens” good looks. He will have you star struck and singing La Bamba in no time. By his side is Jason “JD” DeMello, his stealth moves will help get our team up on the scoreboard. Watch out for Harry “Doh” Kim, he can beat you from the right side or the left side, he hasn’t quite figured out which way he shoots yet. Last, but not least is Mayson (BTC aka Brown Tom Cruise) Abraham, the competitive spirit that will help direct our team out on the ice. You’re sure to hear his famous saying “same boards” sometime during the day.

The team knows that the key to success is to outskate, outpass and outshoot the other teams, but this will prove to be secondary. We are all about good looks, high-fives, laughs and if you get too close, bum taps. We are excited to participate in a great cause and look forward to making this an annual event.

Old Farmers

A group of old farmers from Didsbury are once again heading out to Cochrane for what they call “The best hockey tournament in Alberta!” After making it to the recreational division finals in their Kimmett Cup debut last year, they will be clearing off their dugouts early to get a lot of practice in this year. They are determined to go back to Didsbury as Kimmett Cup Champions! You should have no trouble picking this team out on the ice… they will be the only team playing in Wranglers!

Puck Junkies

An original team from Kimmett Cup 1, the Puck Junkies have changed over the years but our goal is still the same: Have a great time. For Kimmett Cup 1, the team consisted of a combination of two great hockey families, the Shelleys and Owens’. Even with lots of history the team bonded over the shared goal of the Shottie Stick. Yes, not only did our team love pond hockey, we all saw the Shottie Stick and, as one, decided that our goal for this tournament is second place. While that was a hearty dream around noon, later that night we found ourselves in a shootout after three overtime periods in the semi-finals. As we all know, the Puck Junkies made it to their goal after another shootout at the end of Kimmett Cup and reached the ultimate goal of the Shottie Stick.

So why do we love & live hockey and especially pond hockey?

Because its fun. We make new friends for life. Celebrate our passion with old friends. Live out our dreams. Never grow old. See young minds, egos & bodies blossom. The thrill of competition. Learn to win and learn to lose with class. Sportsmanship. Leadership. Teamwork and giving your all at anything you do. Learn to laugh at yourself.

All the values that Lindsay cherished and lived so passionately.

Tacoma Town

Tacoma Town was born from the spirit of the west and is powered by Cochrane Toyota.

We have finally settled into the rec division where we belong. After years of first round playoff exits…Lets be honest, most of the time we never even made the playoffs. One time we made the playoffs but our whole team went home without asking if we had another game. Make no mistake our team is still hungry for victory were just tired of the competitive teams skating circles around us!

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!

Tofield Fighting Snowgeese

The Fighting Snowgeese are honoured to be back for their 5th appearance in the Kimmett Cup. Captain Mike “the ring bearer” Kauffman is hopeful that a revamped roster will be what’s needed to make some progress in the playoffs; but concerned that the most recent big city additions may give us salary cap trouble.

Brother Jon “yes, I am related to Mike even though he is 1 foot shorter than me” Kauffman is back once again and is even bringing his rowdy wife and kids along as fan support this time. Local Cochranites Craig Wiens, Amy Moggy and Jaci Klassen are all back again and joined by one other local, Molly Ferdinand. The group brings good local knowledge of alternatives to Days Inn for breakfast and a whole bunch of kids for fan support.

After years away, Benoit Houle and his smooth French accent and wonky back returns again and this might have been what was needed to finally lure fellow Edmontonians, Trevor Philippon, Kelly Redinger and Troy King to the event. Trevor will be tracking advanced stats for the team while Kelly captures it all on film. Troy promises to sharpen his skates and tape his splintered stick in hopes that this will be more effective than the other way around.

We Are Family

We Are Family is back for a ninth consecutive Kimmett Cup as we skate for Lindsay. The aging process has decimated most of the male portion of our team with 5 players over the age of 53; which should place us in the new “Dinosaur Division!” In order to scrape into a playoff birth we are totally dependent on our two young studs Taylor and Justin and our incredible female component of Amanda, Lauren, Jill, and Kelsey. If you are lucky enough to draw us in your round robin game get ready for as much obstruction as the rules allow! We wish all teams a great couple of days at “The Cup” as we do great things in Linds name for the kids!!!

Bader’s Right Angles

Oh, hi there! Welcome to Bader’s corner of the square! You got it! Hot eats and cool treats! Coming off of major success in last year’s Kimmett Cup, Bader’s Right Angles have made absolutely no changes to their game plan. That’s right, wheel, snipe, celly! Wheel, snipe, celly! Wheel, snipe, celly! Natural hatty.

To let you in on the secret, watch out for player-coach Byron “The King” Bader serving up sweet sweet dangles, sick mitt toe drags, sniping top shelf beauties, bardown clappers, cloggin’ up the middle and playing shutdown defense. Never has there ever been such a player-coach at the intersection of two perpendicular straight lines! That’s right baby! This guy is straight up 90 degrees! Sizzlin’ hot! All of Bader’s Right Angles (aka the orthogonals) have been handpicked from top tier hockey programs – some real, some fantasy.

Warriors Youth Recreational Hockey Team

Our team was established due to the demand of teenagers wanting to play hockey in a friendly environment. Perseverance, dedication and respect are what defines our team this season. A few obstacles came along when we first established this program. Our players were faced with a few stigmas within the community but never gave up their right or their love for this sport. Respect for one another, encouraging each other and being the best that they can be is what we reinforce during our practices and games. Our team name sure defines our players! Go Warriors!

This is our second year at the Kimmett Cup and we are excited to get on the ice. We’re a mixed bag of middle agers and kids and we love to play hockey!

The BGC Bulldozers

We are just an assorted bunch of dirt nerds that don’t get out much. We are a team of marginal 4th line grinders that occasionally get called up to the big leagues. Our inexperienced head coach Uncle Andy works with the team daily to push us to strive for mediocrity. Coach Andy has instilled in us the old adage “Shoot for the net. Even if you miss, it will land among the snowbank.” He has also been known to say “Set the bar as low as possible to have the best chance of meeting your goals”. We aim to live up to both of these statements on judgment day. February 11th, 2017. This is Thunderdome.

We are Officially Family

Our team story…. This team is made up of some of the biggest hearts – the people that are the first to show up when you need a helping hand, they are the first to donate when you ask for their support, they show up with Kleenex and a tub of ice cream if you need some love, they give the best hugs, they love all animals, they love the FLAMES (sorry team mates from Edmonton…. You are not the one writing this story). Their personalities represent the same things Kimmett Cup stands for – Everyone Plays. It’s a pleasure to get on the ice with them year after year creating memories to last a lifetime!

Some of us only get on skates once a year, some play many times a week. We have a wide range of skills on this team – some of us like to get in the action, rubbing elbows with the other teams while some like perfecting their cherry picking skills. The last thing you need to know about our team is that this year one of our team mates is too busy creating life…. No big deal… so she will be our biggest fan on the sidelines! We are all very excited to meet the newest Kimmett baby!

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.
