Some of the activities Nitehawks players participate in, on a weekly basis are; playing shinny with the disabled adult program, teaching hockey to youngsters in the Hot Shot program, mentoring less fortunate youngsters at the Sanctuary program, and taking down tables at the Lion’s Club Bingo. We also participate in Cancer Society fundraising, reading and playing shinny in elementary schools, and cleaning the highway as part of the Adopt a Highway program.
In our 37 years in the KIJHL, seven of our players have played in the NHL, 120 have advanced to Major Junior or Junior A, and 55 players went on to play at the college level. You can check out Nitehawks player advancement by scrolling to our Alumni pages.
