The Oil Kings are very proud to have been selected as the recipient for the 2017-18 Western Hockey League (WHL) Marketing/Business Award and hope to continue to leave a lasting footprint in the community for seasons to come. The league announced the selection today at the 2018 WHL Awards in Red Deer, AB.
“The Edmonton Oil Kings are extremely honoured to be recognized by the WHL as the recipient of this year’s WHL Marketing/Business Award,” said Kevin Radomski, Director of Business Operations. “This recognition wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of all our staff and the tremendous support we receive from such a passionate fan base in Edmonton. Our fans have supported all of our community initiatives this season in a big way from our Star Wars Night jersey auction in support of Sorrentino’s Compassion House to our very first sock drive that saw our fans bring in over 3,000 pairs of socks for the Mustard Seed here in Edmonton. It’s that passion that makes the acceptance of this award possible.”
The Oil Kings invested more than $225,000 into the community through charitable initiatives this past season, including surpassing the Oil Kings Teddy Bear Toss record yet again by raising more than $20,000 and collecting 14,122 bears.
