Just a reminder to fans of the Alexandria Glens, the team doesn't have a home game this weekend. Instead, the boys will play Friday night in Winchester and Saturday night in Cobden.

For more on the Glens, check out this week's edition of The Glengarry News. We also have a photo gallery from last week's home game available here.

Looking for something to do Friday night instead? The Glengarry Sports Palace will be buzzing with junior 'A' hockey instead, as the Hawkesbury Hawks have migrated south to play a CCHL contest. Read the details in The News this week.

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.

sean Mar 19, 2015 - 2:21pm

Alexandria's Brandon Barillaro returned to the Hawkesbury Hawks lineup on Tuesday night, as his team skated to a 4-3 victory that evened the series at two games apiece. Barillaro has a cast on his hand and had sat out the first three matches of the opening-round playoff series with the Cornwall Colts. On Tuesday night, he picked up an assist in the Hawks win.

He expects to be in the lineup again tonight, albeit in limited action primarily on special teams, when the Hawks skate in game five at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
