Elgar Petersen (Humboldt) – Elgar Petersen is being inducted into the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame in the Grassroots category.
Petersen has been a major contributor to all levels of hockey in Humboldt since the late 1960’s. During his time as a volunteer with Humboldt Minor Hockey he was a coach, a mentor, a player, and to the community so much more. Petersen was seen at the rink almost every day, some times for over 12 hours a day.
The members of the hockey community in Humboldt say his greatest legacy is three generations of minor hockey participants and hundreds of junior hockey players from throughout Canada and beyond that would call him their friend. The City of Humboldt chose to honor Petersen’s contributions to sport by naming the arena after him.
