sean Jan 9, 2015 - 5:00pm

(By David Murphy)     Former Cornwall Colts star Kyle Baun is a nominee for the 2015 Hobey Baker award which recognizes the top NCAA men’s hockey player.

Baun, a Junior at Colgate, leads the Raiders with 17 points in 18 games.  His stats place him among the best in the ECAC – tied for 6th in goals and 7th in points. Baun, 22, was also named to the All-Tournament Team at the Three Rivers Classic earlier this season. During his time at Colgate, Baun was named to the ECAC All-Rookie Team as well as an ECAC All-Academic Team honoree.

Glengarry sports fans may recognize Colgate as the New York State university where the Spink twins, Tylor and Tyson, are also student-athletes.

Fans can vote to support Baun (once per day) by following this link.

In 2014, Baun attended the Detroit Red Wings 2014 Development Camp, along with his former Colts teammates, Tyson and Tylor Spink. Kyle Baun spent two seasons with the Cornwall Colts (2010-11, 2011-12) amassing 103 points in 98 games, before beginning his career with Colgate.

River Kings' three-game winning streak snapped

sportseditor Jan 6, 2015 - 12:35pm

Fred Piche and the two-time defending champion Jonquiere Marquis snapped the River Kings' winning streak on Sunday afternoon at the Civic Complex.

Jonquiere downed Cornwall 7-2 in front of 992 fans. Piche, the former River Kings goaltender, stopped 39 shots to earn the victory in goal. The River Kings had won three straight heading into the contest. 

Patrick Bernier and Michael Novosad had late first-period markers for the Marquis.

Pierre-Luc Faubert gave the River Kings life with a shorthanded goal at 7:18 of the second. Faubert pounced on a Jonathan Jasper rebound and beat Piche, who was down and out. But Jonquiere capitalized on an odd-man rush and restored its two-goal lead a few minutes later when Dominic Leveille beat River Kings goaltender Pete Karvouniaris at 11:09 of the second. Leveille then tapped in his second of the game with 47 seconds to play in the middle frame.

Moments later, newly acquired enforcer Curtis Tidball and Jonquiere’s Patrick Bernier had a spirited bout.

The Marquis began the third with a powerplay and 1:03 into the period, Francis Charette picked the top corner for his 16th goal of the season. Rookie forward Marc-Andre Levasseur scored his first goal as a River King with 9:09 to play in the third to cut the Jonquiere lead to 5-2. But later in the period, Charette, with his second of the game, and Michael Stinziani scored 18 seconds apart to ice the victory for the Marquis.

Charette (first), Leveille (second), and Faubert were the announced stars. Cornwall outshot Jonquiere 41-30.

NEXT WEEKEND: The River Kings are back in action on Friday at Trois-Rivieres. Cornwall returns to home ice on Saturday, Jan. 10 when Riviere-du-Loup comes to town. Game time at the Civic Complex is 7:30 p.m.

The Char-Lan junior B Rebels added forward Thomas Hargrave to their roster last week. He’s played much of this season with the junior ‘A’ Cornwall Colts.

Alexandria coach Stephan Nadeau says McKinty “is a very talented player with great vision. He is another big asset for our team.”

sportseditor Jan 6, 2015 - 12:29pm

The Seaway Valley Rapids minor atom team resumed regular-season play after an almost two-week hiatus on Monday, Jan. 5, playing the Ottawa Silver Seven (White) team. 

The boys were able to shake off the rust early in the first period, when Ethan Montroy connected on a pass from Carson Martin to score on a power play.  Next, Carey Terrance, Jr. scored on a breakaway during the second period.  The Silver Seven team tied it up early in the third period.  Less than a minute later, Rylan Adams got the go-ahead goal on a rebound from Jimmy Sullivan.  It proved to be the game winner.  Late in the third period the team got an insurance tally, when Jacob Anderson shot from the point, after a pass from Joshua Esford. The shot was tipped in by Trysen Sunday.  Earning the win between the pipes was Connor Fox in a game presented by Le Roi du Camion.
