A new senior 'A' hockey league aims to ice teams across Ontario.

Led by the Cornwall Prowlers, who played last season in the LHSAO, the Eastern Ontario Senior A Hockey League has been formed, with plans to begin play this fall.

In addition to a team in Cornwall, squads are expected to be iced in Maxville (the Maniacs), Kinburn, Kingston, and Kanata. There's also interest in Vankleek Hill and Eganville.

Organizers are aiming for a six to eight-team league for the inaugural season.  A league meeting is scheduled for June 23, with a player showcase booked for August 10.
