The Legionnaires also announced that they will be forming an Alumni Association for former players, management, executive and coaches which the Fogarty's will be involved in. On July 9th an Alumni Association planning meeting will be held at Stokes Inland.

The Sauve family was also on hand on Thursday for a special announcement. Brent Sauve who just finished his final season with the Legionnaires will be heading to Adrian College in the fall after accepting a hockey scholarship at the Division 3 College. Sauve will be playing under Sarnia Jr B alumni Ron Fogarty who is the head coach at Adrian.
"It's amazing, the chance to play hockey again for four more years is a huge blessing for me" Sauve said . "No one wants their Junior B year to be done. As soon as that ended I wondered what I was going to do now and then this opportunity came up and I'm really thrilled to go."
Sauve plans to study business management with international business as a minor. He will be reporting to Adrian on August 18. Classes start on August 29 and their first game is on November 1.
