The announcement will take place in Edmonton and is about a major international event.
Tom Renney, CEO of Hockey Canada, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer of Hockey Canada, will join Oilers Entertainment Group to make the announcement Thursday at 10 a.m.
Red Deer hosted an international hockey event this summer with the Hlinka Gretzky Cup and was also host of the 2016 Memorial Cup.

More to come.
