The Oil Barons are Fort McMurray's community team, and take every opportunity to reach out and give back whenever possible.
One lucky local minor hockey players gets the full Oil Barons experience before select home games, touring the dressing room, meeting the players, and being announced as part of the starting lineup before the game!
Every November, the Oil Barons dedicate a home game to the great Santas Anonymous program at Father Mercredi High School. When the Oil Barons score their first goal of the game, fans litter the ice with teddy bears, all of which are donated to the program to help give every family in the Wood Buffalo region food and toys for the Christmas holiday.
The Oil Barons hold practices, autograph sessions, and community skates in Fort McKay and Anzac, as well as an off-site practice at Macdonald Island Park for the New Year's Eve Craze festivities.
The Oil Barons have helped raise awareness of Alberta Health Services' Flu Shot campaign.
The Barons, like many AJHL teams, turned out to help with Pizza 73's Slices for Smiles fundraiser benefitting childrens' hospitals across Alberta.
