There may be little hockey this season but that has not stopped the Peace River Minor Hockey Association from scoring.

The association was one of 10 across Canada to receive a $10,000 grant from Kruger products in its first-ever Kruger Big Assist program.

“Ten minor hockey associations from across Canada will each receive $10,000 to cover the cost of registration for hockey families in need of an off-ice assist in these troubled times,” says a news release from Kruger.

In June, Kruger Products will be announcing five additional recipients of a Kruger Big Assist — bringing the Kruger Big Assist funding up to $150,000.

“It’s been a difficult year for Canada’s hockey families, and our goal is to support their love and participation in our national sport,” says Susan Irving, CMO Kruger Products, who is herself a hockey mother of two.

More than 450 minor hockey associations from across Canada applied for the money.
