sean Feb 27, 2018 - 3:15pm

Capping off a busy final stretch of play in the CCHL, the Cornwall Colts junior 'A' hockey team will, on March 8, will pay tribute to local hockey icon Dave Ezard in the pre-game ceremony.

A new banner will be unveiled, recognizing Ezard’s retired number 6. The original banner dedicated to Ezard disappeared from the Civic Complex a few seasons ago.

Ezard patrolled the blueline for his hometown Royals from 1975 to 1980. He earned the 1980 Memorial Cup MVP. The D-man was also the first Quebec league defenceman to score 40 goals (105 points) in 1979-80.

Sadly, Ezard passed away in 1995, at the young age of 36. Shortly after, the Cornwall Colts retired Ezard’s number 6 and unveiled a banner that hung from the rafters at the Si Miller Arena and then the Ed Lumley Arena.

Members of Ezard’s family and former teammates will be in attendance for the rededication ceremony on March 8, at 7:30 p.m.
