Updating a story we have in this Oct. 11 issue of The Glengarry News and an earlier post on our website, the CCHL Hawkesbury Hawks will indeed be playing a few more "home" games in Alexandria, at the Glengarry Sports Palace.

A media release from the team indicated all remaining home games for 2017 would be played in Vankleek Hill, with one in Rockland. However, the schedule was altered to accommodate the Hawks a few more times in Alexandria.

To date, the Hawks are 2-0 at the Palace, including a win last Friday night. 

The latest schedule update has Hawks games in Alexandria slated for Nov. 17, Nov 26, and Dec. 15.

Next "home" action for the team is booked for Oct. 13 at 1:30 pm, in Vankleek Hill, versus Pembroke.

The Hawks are hoping to return to their home nest, the Robert Hartley Sports Complex, in January, if repairs are completed.

A two-game stint of home games at the Glengarry Sports Palace in Alexandria appears to be it for the Hawkesbury Hawks, who are moving on to play most of their remaining 2017 home games in Vankleek Hill due to ongoing problems at the Hawkesbury rink complex.

UPDATED post here.

We have details of last Friday's win at the Palace, in the Oct. 11 issue of The Glengarry News. A photo gallery can be viewed online here.

A number of changes have come to the CCHL in time for the 2017-18 season, including a reorganization of teams within the two divisions and adjustments to executives of Eastern Ontario's junior 'A' hockey league.

In a July 24 news release, the CCHL announced that the (Steve) Yzerman Division will continue to have the Nepean Raiders, Ottawa Senators, and Cumberland Grads. The new Rockland Nationals (formerly the Gloucester Rangers club) will be added, along with the eastern rival Hawkesbury Hawks and Cornwall Colts.

The (Larry) Robinson Division will see the return of the Brockville Braves, Smiths Falls Bears, Carleton Place Canadians, and Kemptville 73’s, with the Pembroke Lumber Kings and Kanata Lasers rounding out the six teams.

CCHL squads will continue to play a 62-game schedule.

The playoff format remains unchanged, with the top 8 teams qualifying regardless of division standing.

On the executive front, the Central Canada Hockey League announced that Sean Marcellus has been named director of hockey operations. For the past two seasons the Arnprior, Ont. native had been the administration and operations manager, with wide-ranging responsibilities that included CCHL communications, the website, and media platforms to member team services for operations.

The new role will see Marcellus expand his responsibilities in the hockey operations department under the supervision of Commissioner Kevin Abrams.

Carlos Verde joins the CCHL from the university ranks and will assume the media and community relations portfolio from outgoing executive Tony House.

The CCHL executive for the 2017-18 season includes Commissioner and President Kevin Abrams, Senior Vice President & Director of Finance Ted Ward, Statistician & League Records Manager Peter Peckett, Broadcast Manager Whit Prophet ,and Manager of Academic Services Jonathan Calof. Steve Barban returns as the league's Chairman of the Board of Governors.

The puck drops on the CCHL's 56th season on Sept. 2, in Ottawa, with all 12 member teams playing three games over the Labour Day Weekend.
