Town council has thrown its support behind the bid to proclaim Cochrane Hockeyville for 2024.

Decked out in customized Hockeyville jerseys last night, council recognized March 25-30, 2024 as Hockey Week in Cochrane. 

Cochrane was selected as a final top four community competing to win the grand prize of $250,000 and the opportunity to host an NHL pre-season game.

Should it be successful, prize funds would be used towards upgrades of Cochrane Arena, which turns 50 years old this year. 

Town officials say there are several ways to get involved:

  • Wear your favourite hockey attire. 
  • Take some fun photos or videos and tag Kraft Hockeyville (#krafthockeyville).
  • Join the Community Rally on Thursday, Mar. 28 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Cochrane Arena. 
  • Most importantly – register to vote! Voting is open to anyone 14 and over and voting is unlimited.

Voting takes place from 7 a.m. on Fri. Mar. 29 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 30.
