Dragons apply the brakes

Only seven games away from leaving the regular season, the Drumheller Dragons had been frantically tallying up wins, with five wins to four losses and one tie in their last ten games.
Their 3-0 shutout loss in Canmore on Saturday nudged the Kodiaks one point above Drumheller’s 53 points, knocking the Dragons down to sixth in the southern standings.
Marking their first shutout since mid-January, the Dragons outshot the Kodiaks but could not find the net, as Camrose scored twice in the second period, one shorthanded, and again with five seconds left in the third on Drumheller’s empty net.

Dragons back on top

Drumheller seems to have found their fire, notching up a four point lead against Canmore on February 2, ending with a 7-3 Eagle-slaughter.
Dominating with five goals in the second period alone, including two on the powerplay from Nocera and Faryna, the Dragons are finishing the regular season in style.
The beastly Dragons are known for their use of the body, and on Monday they were as aggressive as their mythological counterpart, laying the Eagles flat out on the ice.

Dragons add familiar name to ownership

knelsen.jpgThe Drumheller Dragons are very excited to announce there will be a new addition to the current ownership of the Alberta Junior Hockey League franchise. 
    Rod Knelsen, owner of LPR Concrete and local hockey enthusiast, has officially partnered with the Christianson family as owners of the Dragons. 
    The Knelsen name is synonymous with the Dragons Organization and success as all three of Rod’s sons have played games for the Dragons.
