A tribute to the man who started it all.....
ordon’s favourite pastime was hockey. He played hockey during his school years. After that he played with the Earlie Bushwackers where he played goal and played out his career. This was the start of three generations of King goalies. The main event for the Bushwackers was to saddle up and travel to Lloydminster to play in the annual weekend tournament. No one ever said how many games were won, but a good time was had by all. He became involved with Kitscoty minor Hockey when his boys started playing. He would help find the coaches and managers, or volunteer to fill these positions himself. He was almost always one of the ones to go in to clean off the ice after a snow storm at the old outdoor rink. And of course, the ice always had to be hand scraped between periods. Gordon was on the Vermilion Jr. B Tiger executive for a few years, while Richard and Murray played there. From there he went on to help the Senior team as assistant manager and finally became manager. He was not sure if he went from the frying pan into the fire when he was retired as manager and became league governor for the Sask/Alta Hockey League. After becoming a league governor and travelling between the local towns, he found the need for a Midget team in Kitscoty. So, in the spring of 1987, Gordon, along with son Murray and Ed Anderson said they would give it a try. Ed was to be manager, Murray coach, and Gordon went out and found players because there were not enough local boys. In 1990–91, his hard work was rewarded with a Zone 2 Provincial Championship team. In 1991–92, the Midgets again were Zone 2 Champs and Silver Medallists. Gordon would go to any game just about anywhere. His grandsons started to play hockey and he followed them closely but still had time to watch other local teams.
