Dawn LeMaistre - Business Manager & Billet Coordinator
Dawn LeMaistre now in her 10th season with the team and 15th season in the AJHL. Responsible for the day-to-day business operations of the team including accounting, marketing, seasons tickets, and game night activities, is just a short list of her involvement with the Oilers Organization. Being our sole recruiter of billet families and player billet placements, don’t be surprised if during a casual conversation she asks you to open your home to one of our great players. Working with both the coaching office and the hockey development side of the business to provide administration support for Spring and Main camps as well as our on-going Hockey Development programs, Dawn is never too far from the day-to-day operations of our business.
