Additional helpers went to Jeff Clarke (2), Marc Andre Labelle (2), Veilleux, Brandon Gilmour, Wensink, Bobby Dow, Russ Decourcie, and Chris Rutley.

Millionaires still in Recession

Maxville’s senior ‘A’ hockey team is still looking for its first win. The team suffered an 11-4 loss Saturday to the league-league West Carleton Rivermen.

Millionaires markers were netted by Pierre Luc Sabourin, Lucas Driscoll, Mikael Dobson, and Braedan Pearl, with assists to Stevie Ray Adams (2), Nick Dixon, Patrick Gilmour, and Ian Boots.

League Expansion in 2020?

The inaugural season of the EOSHL features four teams. The league is reportedly working with four new groups that would potentially double that number for the 2020-21 season.

The EOSHL sees an 8-team league as the ideal size for a senior ‘A’ hockey loop in Eastern Ontario. The expectation is that teams would be split into two divisions with each club playing a 20-game schedule (12 matches within their division and 8 against teams in the opposing group).

The plan is to hold a meeting in April of 2020 to work with serious parties to firm up plans and move forward in time for next season.
