Jason Dolgy scored four times to lead Team White to an 8-4 victory over Team Blue on Saturday night at the Cornwall Nationals intra-squad game. Prior to the contest at the Civic Complex, general manager Mitch Gagne came to terms with the 31-year-old Dolgy, who is from Montreal. The skater has appeared in 24 career FHL games with the Vermont Wild and Brooklyn Aviators, scoring 13 goals and 21 assists for 34 points. Dolgy is an NCAA Division 3 graduate of SUNY-Brockport. He suited up in two games for the Cornwall River Kings in 2012-13 and also played for Trois-Rivieres of the LNAH.

Meanwhile, the Nationals have signed goaltender Brandon Billie, who wasn’t in action on Saturday night at the Civic Complex. The 23-year-old from Ottawa played Division 2 hockey in Sweden last season. In 11 games with Nittorps IK, he posted a 2.73 goals against average with a .909 save percentage. Billie appeared in 10 games with the FHL’s Steel City Warriors in 2014-15.

The Nationals are back in action on Saturday, Oct. 22, when they host Watertown in pre-season play at the Civic Complex. Cornwall’s inaugural FHL home opener is booked for Sunday, Oct. 30 versus Danville. The puck drops at 1 p.m.

The Cornwall FHL club will play 26 home games at the Civic Complex.
