Blair Atcheynum

Blair AtcheynumBlair Michael Atcheynum (born April 20, 1969) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. Atcheynum from Sweetgrass First Nation is of Cree descent.

Playing Career
Atcheynum was selected in the third round, 52nd overall, by the Hartford Whalers in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft after scoring 70 goals in 71 games with the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League during the 1988–89 season. He never reached the NHL with the Whalers and was later claimed by the new Ottawa Senators in the 1992 NHL Expansion Draft.

He spent the majority of his career in the minor leagues but was able to break into the NHL for a total of 196 games over four seasons. He got his first taste of the NHL during the 1992–93 NHL season when he played four games for the Ottawa Senators, although he spent the majority of the season with their farm team, the New Haven Senators of the American Hockey League. It would take another four years to make it as a regular in the NHL. He played in 61 games (scoring a respectable 11 goals and 15 assists) during the 1997–98 NHL season for the St. Louis Blues after signing with the team as a free agent. The main reasoning behind Atcheynum being called up to the Blues during this period was due to the lack of depth on their roster early on in the 1997-98 season. With St. Louis, Atcheynum would typically play on a line with Craig Conroy and Scott Pellerin that was fondly referred to as the “CPA Line”. Blues general manager Larry Pleau was impressed by Atcheynum’s hard work, saying “Blair’s not a player in the bottom third of our roster. He’s one of our first nine forwards. He can move up to the first or second line without missing a step if we need him”.

The next year he was selected in the 1998 NHL Expansion Draft by the newly formed Nashville Predators. He played 53 games with the Predators before being traded back to St. Louis for a sixth-round draft pick in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. In 1999 he was signed as a free agent by the Chicago Blackhawks, with whom he played with between 1999 and 2001. Atcheynum retired as a professional hockey player in 2001.

Atcheynum was an assistant coach with the Battlefords North Stars of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for 9 seasons. He was honoured at the 2012 First Nation Games, alongside Fred Sasakamoose, who was the first treaty Indian to play in the NHL. Atcheynum and Sasakamoose were recognized as role models at both the summer and winter games as hope for young First Nations athletes.

Recent Years
In most recent years, Atcheynum has been involved with First Assist. First Assist is headed by John Chabot, a group which is made up of indigenous NHL Alumni players along with PWHL women players. This group travels to remote northern communities to work with the youth and leadership to provide guidance and generate hope to follow their dreams.


Involvement with community groups in The Battlefords, surrounding area, and all communities we do work in is important to us. Support for organizations and initiatives that bring communities together is a big part of who we are. Building relationships not only with our clients, but with local residents as well is something we always strive for.

Meridian Energy Services Inc. offers substantial support to numerous causes. Some of the many groups they have generously supported include:
