Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame Gala
Each year the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame Committee selects up to six individuals and two teams from a list of nominations to be formally inducted into the AHHF Gallery.
It is at our prestigious awards gala that these recipients are acknowledged and celebrated for the successes and contributions in and to the game of hockey. Since 2015, inductees have been recognized at a special gala event held in Canmore. Prior to that, the induction evening occurred as part of the Hockey Alberta Awards Evening.
The AHHF Awards Gala provides an opportunity for guests to enjoy not only the event, but time together in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. The gala, full of hockey history, stories, great food and unique silent auction items is certainly one that inductees, families, friends, past inductees and you are sure to enjoy!
The 2020 inductees are Bill Bucyk, Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Bob Clark, John Davidson, Dr. Randy Gregg, Ken Hitchcock, Jamie Macoun, 1974-75 Lethbridge Native Sons. See complete bios >
The induction gala for the 2020 Class of the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Originally scheduled for July 19, the celebration event for the Class of 2020 will be held July 18, 2021 at the Coast Hotel in Canmore. Ticket sales will resume later this year.
“This was a difficult choice but ultimately the right decision based on the continuing uncertainty in Alberta with regard to the ongoing COVID-19 situation,” said Al Coates, chair of the AHHF. “The induction gala is an evening of recognition and celebration for the inductees, their families and friends. The AHHF strives to bring Alberta’s hockey family together, and we want to do our best to ensure that those who want to be in attendance have the opportunity, and that means delaying the official inductions until next year.”
In addition to the decision on the 2020 Gala event, the AHHF has decided not to recognize a Class of 2021. Nominations from the public can still be submitted for individuals and teams to be recognized as part of the Class of 2022.
Nominations are now open for the 2022 AHHF Induction Class and are sought from members of the public to recognize:
> individuals who have made a significant contribution to the game of hockey in Alberta through regional, national, or international accomplishments, or for their contributions to the growth and development of the game in Alberta.
> groups or teams who achieved a significant result at a National or International level or impacted on a provincial level under exceptional circumstances.
