Milne has been with the Canmore Eagles since the end of the 2007-2008 season as Head Coach/General Manager. Milne, a graduate of the University of Alberta with a Sports Management Degree, is no stranger to the Alberta Junior Hockey League. As a player, Milne won a league championship with the St. Albert Saints in the 1995-1996 season. He was also an Assistant Coach for the St. Albert/Spruce Grove Saints for three seasons. A graduate of the St. Albert Minor Hockey Program, Milne played the better part of three seasons in the Western Hockey League for the Spokane Chiefs, Medicine Hat Tigers and Swift Current Broncos. After one season of Professional Hockey, Milne got involved in full time coaching with the Swift Current Broncos and the Kamloops Blazers of the W.H.L.
Milne, a “players coach”, who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with a youthful perspective, has been pleased with the direction his staff has pointed the hockey program, and looks forward to achieving more of the goals which have been set for the organization. Andrew, along with his wife Erin and sons Easton and Sawyer and daughter Ellery have made the Bow Valley their home, and feel extremely lucky to be part of such a world class location and a spectacular community.
“I would like to thank the Community, Volunteers, Fans, and Board of Directors for their continued support. The combined efforts of all of these people are the sole reason for our success to date. Thank you to you all.”
The Eagles were pleased to welcome former NHL player Jeremy Reich to the organization during the 2012-13 season. Reich played 90 games for the Boston Bruins from 2006-2008 and spent the 2011-12 season playing in Europe for the German team ERC Igolstadt. The 35-year-old native of Craik, Saskatchewan was drafted 39th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1997 and was a team-mate of Milne's when they both played for the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League during the 1997-99 seasons. Reich's professional experiences will be a great asset to the Eagles on the practice rink, in the the dressing room, and on the bench.
Evan joined the Eagles as an assistant coach during the summer of 2015. At 27 years old he joined Milne and Reich on the Eagles staff, previously leading the Cochrane Generals of the Heritage Junior Hockey League as Head Coach for three seasons. Originally born in Canmore, McFeeters competed in his younger years for Canmore Minor Hockey prior to moving on to play junior. Since playing, McFeeters has devoted his life to coaching and teaching the game. McFeeters has built championship teams in the past and will bring his knowledge and leadership to the Eagles organization. McFeeters brings another perspective to the coaching staff that will help guide our team to achieve our greatest goals.

Darryl Lockwood is now entering his tenth year as the President of the Canmore Eagles.
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 32 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.
Jacqueline Hurlbert joins 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.
To contact Jacqueline please email firstname.lastname@example.org
