Due to COVID-19 concerns and a Hockey Canada directive to cease all hockey-related activities, as well as an order by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit to close community and recreation facilities, the Alexandria Glens of the CCHL2 have deferred their board meeting, scheduled for March 25.
At this time of uncertainty in the sports world and otherwise, a new date for the meeting has not been set.
The 2019 edition of the World Junior ‘A’ Challenge Team Canada East selection camp will be held at Cornwall’s multi-sport complex, in August. Upwards of 44 players, drawn from junior ‘A’ (tier 2) hockey leagues in Eastern Canada, are expected to participate in the Hockey Canada event.
Ontario-based players will be drawn from the CJHL, OJHL, and NOJHL. Others will come from the Ligue de hockey junior AAA du Quebec (LHJAAAQ) and Maritime Hockey League (MHL). Invitees will be announced in the coming weeks.
The camp is scheduled to run August 6-9, with four inter-squad games planned to assist coaching staff in evaluating players.
Glengarrians have been selected in the past for Team Canada East, including Tylor Spink, Tyson Spink, Sebastian Dirven, and Ross Craig.
