The EOJHL Glens dealt the duo to their southern rivals in exchange for a player development fee (PDF) and future considerations.

Robertson, who hails from Maxville, is 18-years-old and plays forward. Checking in at 5 ft. 8 in. and 165 lb, the teen started last season with the Rebels before being signed by the Glens. He had one goal in five games with Char-Lan. In Alexandria, Robertson skated in 38 games, notching 15 points. He’s a product of the Seaway Valley Rapids hockey club.

Calling Hawkesbury home, Veilleux started the 2019-20 campaign in the CCHL (junior ‘A’) with the Kanata Lasers, playing five games. He then joined the junior ‘B’ Glens. With the Alexandria squad, he suited up for 37 games, recording 16 points and 240 penalty minutes. The 19-year-old winger is 5 ft. 8in, 150 lb. In all, he played 36 games at the junior ‘A’ level, beginning with a stint two seasons ago as a member of the Cornwall Colts.

On the trade, the Glens organization stated, “We would like to thank Alexim and Graham for their service and wish them the best with Char-Lan.”

The website is chock full of stories on past inductees, since the facility, located in Maxville, was established in 1979.

Traditionally, the hall building opens after the long weekend in May, welcoming visitors through to Labour Day. The board of the hall of fame expects they will have a summer student hosting guests once again this year.

The hall building is located at 35 Fair Street, adjacent to the arena in Maxville.
