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.
Presented by Community Living Glengarry, the 2018 edition of the CommUNITY Run is scheduled to be held Sept. 29, in Alexandria. There are 1 km, 5 km, and 10 km timed races, all of which start and finish at the dome.
Online registration is available at https://goo.gl/T3ZZxA, with rates discounted until Sept. 26.

This event is open to all runners and walkers, regardless of experience.
Proceeds from the event will be used to buy a piece of fitness equipment (hand bike) for the park's outdoor gym facility.
