Two Hawks were named CCHL performers of the month for December.

In the league’s announcement, Grainger, a 20-year-old from Beaconsfield, Quebec is noted to have picked up points in all eight Hawkesbury last month, “while adding multi-point efforts in five games, including a hat trick and 1st-star performance against Ottawa. In all, he recorded 17 points to lead all players in December.

He’s committed to playing NCAA hockey stateside at Western Michigan University.

Chenier, who hails from Hammond, “posted a 5-0-1 record in December, while sporting a 1.81 goals against average and 0.938 save percentage, allowing 2 goals or fewer in five of his six starts. After making 37-saves in an overtime loss to Navan, Chenier reeled off five straight victories, stopping 129 of 137 shots.”

The rookie of the month for December was Vincent Labelle of the Rockland Nationals.

Hawkesbury’s next game action is set for January 9, when the squad will travel to Kemptville. The Hawks will complete the home-and-home the next night. Both contests are 7:30 p.m. starts.

The other county connection to the squad is rookie defenceman Felix Sauve.

The EOSHL Maxville Millionaires finally got the proverbial monkey off their backs last week, scoring their first win of the team’s inaugural campaign in senior ‘A’ hockey.

After opening the season with nine straight losses, the Millionaires skated to a 6-3 victory over the Deseronton Bulldogs on December 7 in Maxville. Pierre Luc Sabourin was named the game’s first star, in recognition of his three-point contribution (1 goal, 2 assists).

On the reason for the win finally coming, Sabourin tells me that he puts it to the Millionaires icing a full squad and playing hard.

Tristen Elie, Connor MacLeod, Leo MacLean, Patrick Gilmour, and Dan Mailloux also scored for the victors.

Chalking up helpers were MacLeod, Tye Terrance, Braedan Pearl, Jacob Swamp, Calvin Wojtaszak, Ryan Carisse, and Gilmour.

Miguel D’aoust backstopped the win, making 34 saves.

With the result, the Millionaires now hold a 1-9 record heading into action this weekend that will see the squad play on the road tonight, December 13, versus the West Carleton Rivermen (9-0-1), before hosting the Cornwall Prowlers (6-2-2) on Saturday, starting at 2 p.m.

Physical Presence

In roster news, team general manager Gerald Goulet made a move to add a physical presence up front, signing Maxville’s own Adam Wensink. He joins the team in a deal with the Prowlers, in exchange for the Millionaires’ 2020 fourth-round draft pick.

Cornwall Drops One

Last weekend, the Cornwall Prowlers lost 6-1 to West Carleton. Marc Andre Labelle potted the lone tally for Cornwall, assisted by Jesse Fontaine and Jeff Clarke.
