After over five years with the Lloydminster Bobcats organization in the capacity of Business Manager, Lloydminster native Malcolm Radke has now moved on to his next phase in life.
Radke joined the team while still enrolled in Business school at the University of Saskatchewan, and finished his degree – with honours – while travelling back and forth between Lloydminster and Saskatoon to take night classes in his first season with the team. One of his first challenges was the Friends of the Bobcats campaign, where he and a number of other volunteers helped secure the transfer of ownership of the team to local investors wanting to keep the Bobcats in town.
With ownership secured, Radke stayed with the organization as the team continuously improved year after year. While the on-ice product improved, the team's community outreach and it's place in the City of Lloydminster continued to grow thanks to Malcolm's efforts. He was a major part of securing Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada in 2014, and proceeded to co-chair the 2016 RBC Cup Committee. After playing a major role in executing the biggest hockey event in the Border City's history, he will now move on to further career opportunites.
On the final day of the 2016 RBC Cup in Lloydminster, Radke shared his thoughts on the event and all those that worked so hard to make it happen.
