With 2019/2020 season fast approaching, the Three Hills Thrashers requested and received a one year leave of absence from the Heritage Junior Hockey League.
The decision was not made lightly but the Thrasher board members felt that by taking a year off from icing a team, it would give them the opportunity and time needed to build a stronger board, build a more competitive team and become a bigger part of the community going forward.
The last few seasons have been difficult for the team as a whole from attracting players, attracting board members and being involved in the community.
These are very important elements of having a successful Jr. B team.
The board is hopeful that this will not be the end of the Thrashers, but a new beginning as they work hard for the following season to recruit board members and strengthen the team.
