Winnipeg, MB – The Winnipeg ICE Hockey Club is excited to announce that the home school for Winnipeg ICE WHL hockey players will be Shaftesbury High School.
“As an alumnus of Shaftesbury, I am very excited that our players will have the opportunity to be supported by such a passionate group of educators,” said Matt Cockell, President and General Manager. “Our players will appreciate the close proximity to the practice facility, wide variety of course selection and high standards for academic achievement.”
