Former Calgary Flame Theo Fleury will be inducted into the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame later this year.
He was drafted by the Flames in the 8th round, 166th overall, at the 1987 NHL Entry Draft and played over 1,000 games in the NHL between 1989 and 2003.
Other inductees this year include former Edmonton Oilers Defenceman Kevin Lowe, Shirley Cameron (player, coach, and builder of women’s hockey), Bob Ridley (long-time play-by-play voice and bus driver of the Medicine Hat Tigers) and Duncan MacDougall (four decades involved with grassroots officiating in Edmonton).
The Medicine Hat Tigers teams of 1987 and 1988 will also enter the hall in recognition of their back-to-back Memorial Cup championships.
The 2019 inductees will be recognized at the AHHF Awards Gala on Sunday, July 21, at the Coast Hotel in Canmore.
