Junior 'A' Colts add depth forward

sean Oct 17, 2017 - 1:38pm

The Cornwall Colts have added forward depth in a trade that brought Tommy Tanner from the Calgary Canucks of the AJHL, in return for a player development fee.

The 19-year-old Montreal-born forward spent the past three seasons playing for Kent School in the USHS, where he collected 40 points in 66 games before joining the Canucks to begin the 2017-18 season.

"He’s my kind of player," says Colts coach Ian MacInnis, of the 6 ft., 175 lb. forward. "He brings a two-way, gritty style every shift."

Update: junior A Hawks to play home games in Vankleek Hill, Rockland, Alexandria

sean Oct 10, 2017 - 3:51pm

Updating a story we have in this Oct. 11 issue of The Glengarry News and an earlier post on our website, the CCHL Hawkesbury Hawks will indeed be playing a few more "home" games in Alexandria, at the Glengarry Sports Palace.

A media release from the team indicated all remaining home games for 2017 would be played in Vankleek Hill, with one in Rockland. However, the schedule was altered to accommodate the Hawks a few more times in Alexandria.

To date, the Hawks are 2-0 at the Palace, including a win last Friday night. 

The latest schedule update has Hawks games in Alexandria slated for Nov. 17, Nov 26, and Dec. 15.

Next "home" action for the team is booked for Oct. 13 at 1:30 pm, in Vankleek Hill, versus Pembroke.

The Hawks are hoping to return to their home nest, the Robert Hartley Sports Complex, in January, if repairs are completed.

sean Oct 10, 2017 - 3:36pm

Green Valley's Remi Elie is back in the NHL.

After a late cut from the Dallas Stars training camp, Elie was loaned to the AHL Texas Stars, for whom he played the bulk of the last two seasons. In 129 games (including two this season) with the AHL club, Elie has 46 points.

Late last season, he was called up to Dallas, playing in 18 games and scoring 1 goal to go along with 6 assists.

The NHL club today announced his recall to Dallas, which is winless in two games this season.

Elie, a 6 ft. 1 lb., 215 lb. left winger was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (40th overall) of the 2013 NHL draft. His junior hockey career began in the CCHL with the Hawkesbury Hawks, before he went on to play for several OHL clubs.
