Lancaster’s Phillip Veilleux, a student-athlete at Concordia University, recently returned from competing at the Canadian University National Invitational Baseball Tournament, where the Stingers went 0 and 3, losing games to McGill (5-3), Wilfred Laurier (13-4), and Guelph (4-1).

On the experience competing at the national level, the 5 ft. 10 in., 200 lb. outfielder tells me, “It was very good calibre, and we got to face some of the best teams in the country.”

Guelph went on to beat Laurier in the final, 2-1. Other universities at the event were McMaster and Acadia.

As for Veilleux, he went 1 for 6 (hitting a single) over the course of the weekend competition in Ajax. He also had 5 walks, stole a base, and scored 3 runs.

During the regular season which ran from late August through early October, Concordia amassed a record of 6 wins and 11 losses.

“I was able to step up this year and start every single game in right or centrefield,” Veilleux notes. “Despite the loss [at nationals], it was still a great way to end my career with the Stingers, as I am graduating this year.”

Veilleux is completing his final year of studies as he works towards graduating next spring with an honours degree in urban planning.

Jr. ‘B’ Glens add offensive punch for tonight’s home opener

The Alexandria junior ‘B’ Glens this week signed Alexim Veilleux, of Hawkesbury, with the 18-year-old forward set to be in the lineup tonight, for the team’s home opener, at the Glengarry Sports Palace, where the boys will host the Carleton Place Jr. Canadians, starting at 8 p.m.

Veilleux was signed from the Kanata Lasers of the CCHL. He had suited up in five games with the junior ‘A’ club this season, after playing 31 matches a year ago, split between the Cornwall Colts and Lasers.

He has typically slotted into the right wing and checks in at 5 ft. 8 in, 150 lb. Look for him wearing jersey number 28 tonight.

Alexim isn’t the only “Veilleux” on the team. There is also Trystan, a 20-year-old defenceman who hails from Hershey, Pennsylvania. He wears jersey number 10.

And if you were curious, the boys are related; they are brothers. Their father is Eric Veilleux, who coached QMJHL Halifax Mooseheads last season and is now an assistant coach with the AHL Syracuse Crunch.

Here’s the complete roster scheduled to hit the ice tonight.
