Com­pet­i­tive hockey

The re­gion will see a new com­pet­i­tive se­nior ‘A hockey league hit the ice this fall, in­clud­ing a team based in Corn­wall that will fea­ture at least two county play­ers.

The Prowlers, as the squad is known, will play their home games at Corn­wall’s multi-sport com­plex, and com­pete in the Ligue de hockey sénior A de l'Ou­taouais (LHSAO).

Amongst those com­mit­ted so far to the ros­ter are Jesse Fon­taine, from Wil­liamstown. The 24-year-old’s hockey ca­reer in­cludes stretches with the CharLan ju­nior ‘ B’ Rebels, the Corn­wall ju­nior ‘A’ Colts, La Tuque of the QJAAAHL, the Corn­wall Na­tion­als, and St. Lawrence Col­lege.

Of the op­por­tu­nity, Fon­taine says, “I was look­ing to get back into com­pet­i­tive hockey, as I missed it, and men’s league didn’t com­pare. I fig­ured this was the best op­por­tu­nity, and I’m look­ing for­ward to play­ing com­pet­i­tively again.”

The Prowlers have also inked Alexan­dria’s Pierre- Luc Sabourin. The 21- year- old de­fence­man played his ju­nior hockey with both the Glens and Rebels. Last sea­son in CharLan, he recorded 45 points in 44 games, to go along with 62 penalty min­utes.
