Last evening, the Eastern Ontario Super Hockey League (senior ‘A’) held an expansion draft for the three new teams to begin play this fall. Among them is the Glengarry Pipers, based at Alexandria’s Glengarry Sports Palace.
With the second overall selection, the Pipers picked Neil Chabot, who last season was a member of the EOSHL-championship-winning Cornwall Prowlers.
Glengarry’s second selection saw Brandon Billie added to the fold. He was with the West Carleton Rivermen for the 2019-20 season, where his now-former team was the playoff runner-up.
Mark Pearl, formerly with the Maxville team, was the Pipers’ third-round selection, and Maxime Bonin, from the Prowlers, was Glengarry’s fourth man added to the roster.
Frontenac Phantoms picks were Matt Wilson, Ryan Carisse, Blade Grigg, and Hayden Ford.
Chosen by the Smiths Falls Rideaus were Greg Harding, Thank you Power, and Joey Driscoll.
The main EOSHL draft is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, and will involve all seven franchises.
