For the third straight season, the CCHL2 will open its season with a 16-team showcase, in Ottawa, on Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10 at the Richcraft Sensplex.

On Friday, September 15, the new Embrun Panthers host the Ottawa Canadians in their home opener. The next night, the new Whitewater Kings bring hockey to Cobden, as they open against their closest rival, the Renfrew Timberwolves.

After last night's washout, the action is set to resume on numerous fields throughout the county, notes GSL vice-president Tammy MacSweyn. She adds that fingers are crossed for some wind and heat to dry the surfaces.

Despite the heavy rain throughout the day Monday, the south field at Alexandria's Island Park looks in good shape this morning.
