A new girls hockey team is making waves in the Parkland. 

The Grand Plains Ice Dogs are in their inaugural season in the Rural Manitoba Female Hockey League. They are one of nine squads who compete in the Atom division.

Head coach Cary Fillion says the team was created after he and some friends realized there were 31 eligible atom-aged girls in the Parkland and could create a team without disrupting rosters of boys atom teams in the area.

According to Fillion the team is a welcome change.

"We're hearing it from the girls and their parents. I'm getting all sorts of emails and comments at the rink 'way to go you guys'."

"Their daughters are having more fun than they're ever had and they're more into it than they ever have been."

The team won their season opener against Neepawa 4-1. 

Over the weekend the Ice Dogs held their home opener in Grandview where they dominated the Rivers Jets 19-0.

The Dogs won't play again until December 11th when they host Elkhorn in Grandview.


For more on the Ice Dogs tune in to the Kings One Hour Power Play on Friday, November 18th from 4:00-5:00pm for the full interview with Cary Fillion.

Defenseman Austin Douglas scored the lone marker for the Kings in the loss. The goal was his third of the campaign, all three have been scored against the Stamps.
