BIGGAR, Sask. – A Saskatchewan company is hoping to score workers by offering jobs to anyone who can shoot on a hockey net.

AGI Envirotank in Biggar, west of Saskatoon, has posted an ad that starts with a call for players, coaches and managers to help rebuild the town’s senior hockey team.

It seems there haven’t been enough players to get a team together for a couple of years.

One of AGI’s founders, Dave Burton, wants to play hockey and it just so happens that the company also needs people to work in welding, drafting, fabricating and other jobs.

Burton’s son, Jeff, says the company can teach people to weld, but it doesn’t have time to teach people to play hockey.

AGI builds tanks for service stations and oil fields.

“If your dream is to continue to play hockey while establishing a career, we encourage you to consider relocation to Biggar and employment with AGI Envirotank,” reads the ad.
