Grande Prairie Athletics
win NPHL championship


Fifty-eight years separate local hockey heroes, Dennis Rix and Dale Stokke but they have one thing in common. Both played significant roles in winning a league championship cup for the Grande Prairie Athletics. However, in 1961 the championship was determined in the board room - In 2019 it was won on the ice. Profiles of the players and other details from both series reflect the nature of senior hockey in the South and North Peace Hockey League over the years.
