Heading into last season, the Crusaders had the issue of having not one defenceman returning.
Cam Reagan and Brett Roberts opted to take their talents to the USHL and KIJHL respectively, Koletrane Wilson was called up to the WHL by the Lethbridge Hurricanes, Chase Torontow and Ben Sowa moved onto the college level, and, Austin Shmoorkoff, Jacob Thomas, and Ben McLeod decided to step away from hockey. Of course, McLeod did decide to return to the Cru few games into the regular season.
It eventually panned out for the organization due to their phenomenal scouting staff, and acquisitions made by General Manager Kyle Chase.

It was a successful year for the Sherwood Park Crusaders. With them being one of the most inexperienced teams in the AJHL, the expectations for this team were unclear.
They wrapped up their 60 game regular season with a 27-31-2 record and finished fifth in the North Division. They battled it out with the Grande Prairie Storm for first-round home ice advantage right until the last game of the season.
Their season was over after were eliminated by the Storm in the first round of the playoffs. It was a highly competitive series which really could’ve fallen either way. Unfortunately for Sherwood Park, a poor Game Five showing resulted in the Storm eliminating them in after a 6-1 spanking.
There were plenty of positives from the year, but also many negatives. Let’s a take a look at a few of those from both sides.
