Biographical Sketch

The Hockey Legends of Grande Prairie Committee assembled and conducted their first meeting on November 24, 2003. They formulated their purpose statement: “To enhance and publicize Grande Prairie’s rich hockey history by selecting and paying tribute to individuals who have been instrumental in the development of the game of hockey in our community.” Committee members include Darren Foley, Roy Borstad, Ken Head, Jim Patterson, Marv Bird, John Lehners, Joe Haakstad, Cam Henning, and Stan Neufeld. Sponsorship has come from the Royal Bank and The Grande Prairie Storm. The Crystal Center is the home for Hockey Legend memorabilia. Beginning in 2004, 21 inductees have been named (up to 2010) as Grande Prairie Hockey Legends.
