The Calgary Junior A Mustangs are pleased to announce a great partnership with the owners and operators of the Airdrie Thunder Junior B franchise. The Thunder will effectively be the farm team for the Mustangs, and will create a flow of players that will allow for the development and the use of affiliate players for the Junior A franchise. The Thunder players will be a huge part of the Mustangs organization, and the Mustangs will support the Airdrie Thunder programs and team development. The Airdrie Minor Hockey program is a premier development area for good, solid Hockey Player’s and the Airdrie Thunder is one of the most respected teams in the South part of Alberta.
The respective Coaches will be working together in the best interests of both teams, and future joint ventures such as Development Camps, Satellite Games, and Hockey Schools are on the horizon. President Ken Morris is very optimistic that this partnership has been renewed after a six year absence, and is committed to work on behalf of both franchises.
The Mustangs intend to put their best foot forward by expanding the scouting areas and getting to know the prospects available to both teams involved.
The Mustangs presently carry two Airdrie Players on their roster and have invited many more prospects to their Main Camp in August.
