Tyson Soloski, head Coach of the Airdrie Xtreme is very proud of how his hockey players did.

"It was awesome to see all of them get the opportunity to go experience the Alberta Cup, and I think they did a tremendous job playing there."

When asked if this will hopefully be a recurring theme for the Xtreme to have so many players attend the Alberta Cup, Soloski mentioned they definitely deserved to be there.

"It's a really cool opportunity for the kids and they definitely deserve it with all their hard work throughout the season and couldn't be more proud of all of them just to get there and earn a spot to play there."

Hockey Alberta’s Spring Showcase began with the Alberta Cup. The Alberta Challenge (May 3-7) and the Prospects Cup (May 10-13) will also be played in Red Deer.
