Stampede News: Week Ending Jan. 15, 2023

By WFHA, 01/09/23, 2:45PM CST


Continuing with Mental Health month, take a moment to understand depression to better understand the mental and physical symptoms for guidance with yourself and your loved ones. 

Understanding depression:

Everyone struggles at some point in their life and WFHA wants to be sure we are aware of the resources available to us. Check out the North Dakota Behavioral Health website here:


Members who still have outstanding dibs to complete will have their next major opportunity towards the end of the season with over 1000 dib hours needed to complete the in-house jamborees the weekend of March 3-5 and the Bantam B1 State Tournament the weekend of March 10-12.  There will be a few additional dibs available in jersey cleaning, raffle ticket pick-up, and general year-end closure but the majority of members who have outstanding dibs should anticipate their hours being completed in one of the two last weekends.  These dibs will be posted and made available towards the end of February and communicated out.

If you are a family who has completed dibs during Squirt/10U In-House games, please email Shana Wilson at with the number of games and dates you completed and this will be applied to your account.  

Defibrillators at Local Arenas

In light of the recent cardiac arrest of NFL Buffalo Bills player, Damar Hamlin, one of our parents reached out to inquire about defibrillator locations at our local arenas to ensure they were prepared if and when this ever happened to a player or spectator at the rink. 

  • Vets Arena: One in the front lobby and another near the concession stand in Vets 1.
  • West Fargo Sports Arena: Cabinet in the front lobby downstairs.
  • Hoist Hockey: None at this time.

The defibrillators walk you thru step by step what to do so make yourself acquainted with the locations in case an event would arise as you could save a life.  Thanks to Christine Josephsen for the inquiry!
