The Estevan Bruins are incredibly proud to announce our RBC Community Ambassador for the 2020-21 SJHL Season: CALEB PETRIE!

“Living in Estevan for the past two seasons has made me realize how lucky I am to call Estevan my second home,” expressed Petrie. “The people of Estevan show their generous support in so many ways to the Bruins…it makes being involved in the community fun and an opportunity to meet all the great people who make the Bruins such a top notch program.”

Caleb Petrie joined the Estevan Bruins as a rookie at the start of the 2019-20 season and immediately immersed himself into our team’s community involvement activities.

Caleb was always eager to sign up and attended most community events, even volunteering last minute to fill in for teammates on more than one occasion. Among other activities, Caleb was heavily involved in school visits, youth hockey practices, and helping non-profits like the Salvation Army and Hospital Foundation. Despite fans not seeing his name and number on the ice much during home games, ‘Petey’ was still recognized by Bruins’ supporters young and old.

“I love Estevan for many reasons, one of those being the tight-knit ‘family’ atmosphere throughout the entire community. It shows through events like the United Way Telethon, the Radiothon and Festival of Trees supporting the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, and many other community fundraisers,” adds Petrie.

While the 2020-21 season has not allowed our team to be involved in the community much at all, Caleb still volunteered to bring food and snacks to residents in assisted care and helped collect toy donations for the local Hamper Association before the SJHL season was suspended.

“When you’re talking about the Estevan Bruins, you’re not just talking about the 25 guys on the roster, but the City of Estevan standing with us…and we can’t thank every one of you enough for your support,” expressed Petrie.

The two traits that best describe Caleb Petrie are: “Work Ethic” and “Attitude.” No matter the situation, he has always led by example and takes the positive angle, whether it is on the ice, in the weight room, or out in the community.

Despite several other quality players, Caleb Petrie is an easy choice as the Estevan Bruins’ RBC Community Ambassador and would be the perfect representative for the SJHL honour as well.
