AUGUST 2, 2022: Edmonton Oilers Alumni
After a distinguished 40+ year career with the Edmonton Oilers and OEG Inc., Kevin Lowe is retiring from his role of Vice Chair and Alternate Governor of the Edmonton Oilers. Moving forward, in his retirement, Kevin will stay connected to the organization as an Oilers Ambassador.
Not only is Kevin Lowe a household name in hockey, he is part of the foundation, identity and heart and soul of the Edmonton Oilers. Since joining the Oilers as the team’s first-ever draft pick in 1979, Kevin was part of all five Stanley Cup wins among many other impressive achievements—including being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2020 and Order of Hockey in Canada in 2021. Off the ice, Kevin held roles of Head Coach, General Manager, Vice Chair and Alternate Governor, and member of the EOCF Board of Directors just to name a few.
Kevin will continue to promote the storied legacy of the organization to community and business partners while also increasing his flexibility to spend more time with family and pursue other life interests. As Oilers Ambassador, Kevin will support initiatives of the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation and Oilers Alumni, while also connecting with our valued season seat holders, corporate partners and fans across Oil Country.
“Kevin Lowe has been an integral part of the Edmonton Oilers for over 40 years and will continue to be connected to the organization as Oilers Ambassador,” said Edmonton Oilers Chairman Bob Nicholson. “Very few have had the impact that Kevin has had, both on and off the ice. He exemplifies leadership and has done so much to help connect the organization with our fans, while supporting so many worthwhile causes in our community. He is a teammate, leader and friend to so many in the organization and we congratulate him on an amazing career and are excited for this next chapter of his career.”
We’d like to thank Kevin for his immeasurable contributions to the organization and wish him continued success in his new Ambassador role. We also thank Karen, Shane, Devyn, Keegan, Darby, Karly and the entire Lowe family for sharing Kevin’s time for so many years.
