Team Executive / Management

Team President: Darryl Lockwood

Darryl Lockwood is now entering his 11th year as the President of the Canmore Eagles Junior Hockey Club. Darryl was raised in Canmore and currently co-owns the Lockwood Autobody shop with his brother Terry. The Lockwood Autobody shop has been a family run business operating in Canmore for more than 34 years.

A long time hockey fan and current oldtimer player himself, Darryl (and Terry)  helped to support the group that helped bring a Junior A hockey team to Canmore back in 1995. "It's just a passion for me," admits Lockwood, who puts in tireless volunteer hours to help fund-raise and promote the team within Canmore. "I don't have any boys of my own, so I just do it so that the boys in the Bow Valley have the opportunity to play junior hockey within the community. I obviously enjoy watching Junior A hockey and when our players succeed and get offered a scholarship at a university or college level, I am tremendously proud of our organization and happy for the individual."

Prior to becoming Club President, Darryl served on the team's volunteer Board of Directors and for many years. On Eagle game nights, you can usually find Darryl volunteering at the bar upstairs at the Eagle's Nest Lounge, selling game tickets, or just about anything us that needs to be attended to.

Darryl and his wife Vicki have also billeted several Canmore Eagle players for many years and a couple of their billets have moved on to make Canmore their permanent full time residence - something that the Lockwoods are very proud of.

Director of Business Operations & Community Relations - Jacqueline Hurlbert

Jacqueline Hurlbert joined the Canmore Eagles as Director of Marketing and Sponsorship for the 2016-2017 season.

While growing up on the ski slopes of the Rockies, hockey was never her sport but always Jacqueline's passion. Graduating from a sidelines spectator, her first tangible experience working with a hockey team was in 2010 with the Calgary Flames. As part of a University course project, Jacqueline collected player stats in practices and games over a period of 3 months comparing player performance. Her experiences with the team lead to her desire to pursue a career in hockey.

During her attendance at the University of Calgary for a BA in Communications, Jacqueline successfully achieved the position of General Manager of the Cochrane Generals Junior Hockey Club. She was the first female GM in the Heritage Junior Hockey League, and youngest at the age of 22.
Jacqueline's responsibilities with the team were extensive, however, the area she excelled at most was the marketing and community involvement of the Cochrane Generals. Her efforts focused on the belief of giving back to the community that supports the team. During her four seasons with the Generals, Jacqueline developed mentorship programs, charity events, and established integral partnerships within the community that grew the brand and added to the on- ice success of the club. Jacqueline was named the Director of Business Operations & Community Relations of the Canmore Eagles in 2018.
