The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - Sean Bray

A new ju­nior ‘B’ hockey sea­son is just around the cor­ner for the county’s clubs, as the CCHL2 pre­pares to re­turn to the ice this month.

The Alexan­dria Glens will open their 51st camp, at Corn­wall’s multi-sport com­plex, on Sun­day, Aug. 26, at 4 p.m. (Note lo­ca­tion is no longer Alexan­dria, as had pre­vi­ously been ac­counced.)

Fur­ther ses­sions for play­ers are sched­uled for Aug. 27 and 31, as well as Sept. 1.

Mean­while, the Char-Lan Rebels will get things started at Corn­wall’s multi-sport com­plex, with an open­ing ses­sion for play­ers on Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m. The boys will be on the ice again on Sept. 3. For fans, the first chance to see re­turn­ing and prospec­tive play­ers will come Wed­nes­day, Sept. 5 in Alexan­dria, when the Glens host the Rebels at 8 p.m.

The teams are also sched­uled to play each other three days later in Wil­liamstown, at 8 p.m.

On Sept. 9 at 2:30 p.m., the Glens will play their third and fi­nal pre- sea­son game, host­ing the Rich­mond Roy­als.

Glens head coach Stephan Nadeau is back for an­other sea­son. When asked what he has in store for fans, he was re­luc­tant to di­vulge much at this point, jok­ing, “Not much to an­nounce that I want other teams to know.”

He did add that he has al­ready signed three new play­ers and can’t wait to get go­ing with the camp. Nadeau notes, that, while the Glens are ex­pected to lose some solid skaters, his staff has re­sponded by bring­ing in “some re­ally good play­ers.”

Char-Lan head coach Jeff Carter re­turns for the 2018-19 sea­son, along with Roddy MacKen­zie.

Club pres­i­dent Tom Pasco says the Rebels are look­ing for a strong start, “with a good core of re­turn­ing play­ers, in­clud­ing Bren­nen Markell, Sam Fer­land, and Grant Craig be­tween the pipes to start the sea­son.”

As of press time, Char-Lan’s new web­site wasn't yet live, but it should soon be avail­able at char­lan­rebels.com –
