You are Not Alone: A Remarkable COVID Story

Doug Rigler became a GP Hockey Legend in the player category in 2008.

Following is a remarkable COVID story about Doug Rigler, one of our Grande Prairie Legends of Hockey, including a poem dedicated to recognize the selfless service of our First responders. Doug is a hometown boy who developed his skills in minor hockey then spread his talents across both Canada and the United States. Rigler and the the entire roster of the 1979-1980 Red Deer Rustlers were inducted into the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame in 2015. He was with the Rustlers when they claimed a second Centennial Cup in 1980.
