OKOTOKS, AB (August 20, 2022) – The Okotoks Oilers will welcome fans back to the Centennial Arena free of charge for their newly announced preseason home opener on August 31st, it was announced today.

The Oilers have added a fifth home preseason game, and will host the Wisconsin Lumberjacks of the Superior International Junior Hockey League at 2:00 PM to begin their home schedule.

Due to the late addition of the game to the schedule, and the timing necessitated by ice availability, the team will not charge any admission fee for the game and will apply general seating for the game.

The team encourages the entire Okotoks community to come out and enjoy a first look at the 2022-23 roster, which will be just three days removed from the conclusion of main training camp.

Based in Spooner, Wisconsin, the Lumberjacks will be the first USA-based team to visit Okotoks for a Junior A hockey game.

The game will also be broadcast live on HockeyTV.
