Fifteen U18 AAA players who played during the 2022 - 2023 Alberta Elite Hockey League season have been selected as scholarship recipients by the Alberta Elite Hockey League Scholarship Committee.  One of them was a member of the U18 AAA Airdrie CFR Bisons.

Seventeen-year-old Gage Sather is from Cochrane and just completed his first year in the AEHL with the Bisons.  The 5' 11" Sather spent the 2021-2022 season with the Bow Valley Timberwolves in the U18 AA League.  During his time with the Bisons last season, Sather collected 6 goals and added 14 assists for 20 points while picking up just 8 minutes in penalties. Sather also took home the award as the Bisons'
top forward at the recent awards presented by the Airdrie-Cochrane Athletic Association.  

The AEHL Scholarship Committee bases their selection for a scholarship based on good character, hockey ability, and academic standing.  Each of the recipients is eligible to receive a scholarship of up to $3,000 for post-secondary education

The scholarship program was established in 2006 and provides eligible U18 AAA players with financial assistance to further their education at a recognized post-secondary institution of their choice.

To date the scholarship program has awarded over $400,000 to U18 AAA athletes.
