When the opportunity arose for Longhorn Oilfield to get involved as a team sponsor for this special event, boss Dan McLeod was excited to have the opportunity. After all, the Oil Kings aren’t just great examples of what Longhorn loves to support: youth striving for excellence. Their veteran defenceman, Wyatt, is also Dan’s son.
“It’s just such an exciting moment for the community to welcome our son Wyatt back home to play a couple WHL games in Dawson Creek,” says McLeod.
“The Oil Kings organization is absolutely first class, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a team sponsor for this special event.”
For a long time, Longhorn has been a proud sponsor of youth sports in all of the far-flung communities they work in. Now, the arrival of the Oil Kings in Dawson Creek presents a golden opportunity to showcase some home town pride.
“The Oil Kings represent the pinnacle of achievement in major junior hockey, and epitomize the values that the Longhorn brand stands for: hard work, excellence in competition, respect for our communities, and delivering results,” says McLeod.
