Saskatchewan is once again seeking the Kraft Hockeyville crown. Wolseley, Saskatchewan is joining Elliot Lake, Ontario, Cochrane, Alberta, and Enderby, BC as finalists for Kraft Hockeyville 2024.

Read the full Saskatchewan submission here. Supporting the Wolseley SportsPlex, the grand prize of $250,000 in arena upgrades would go towards the arena's need for a new artificial ice plant. Without, they are unsure if the rink will remain sustainable for the years to come.

Saskatchewan has never been lucky enough to claim the grand prize for Kraft Hockeyville, but have made several runs to the final four, the nearest finalist being Wilkie in 2019. Other Saskatchewan finalists include Wilcox in 2008, Humboldt in 2009, a long break before Ituna in 2017, and then Wilkie kicked off a three year run with Pense making the finals in 2020, and Lumsden in 2021.


Voting for the final four will begin later this month on March 29. Aside from the $250,000 prize, the winning community will also earn the right to host an NHL game.
