Brooks Bandits defenceman Cale Makar (Calgary, AB) has become the first player in franchise history to be named Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) Most Valuable Player, it was announced May 19.

Resting five key players, the Brooks Bandits (3-1) fell 5-2 to the host Cobourg Cougars in the final round robin game of the 2017 RBC Cup on Thursday night, clinching 2nd place in the round robin standings for the second consecutive year.

The girls’ doubles duo from Leader, Payton Stimson and Kyla Tumbach, captured the bronze medal at SHSAA provincial badminton. 

The Brooks Bandits (3-0) got eight goals from eight different goal scorers, recording the largest shutout win in the more than two-decade history of the RBC Cup, and largest at a national Junior A championship since a 9-0 win by New Westminster at the 1990 Centennial Cup, downing the central champion Trenton Golden Hawks 8-0 on Tuesday afternoon.

Burning bright on the steps of the Alberta Legislature building, the Flame of Hope was lit and carried off on a course to cities across Alberta.
On May 16 at noon, Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) officers paired with Special Olympics athletes from Calgary, Camrose, Edmonton, Lacombe, St. Albert, Strathcona County and West Central, stood proudly to witness the torch lighting of the Special Olympics Flame of Hope on the steps of the Alberta Legislature signalling the start of the LETR Final Leg which will spread awareness for the 2017 Special Olympics Alberta Summer Games taking place in Medicine Hat this summer.
