A pair of promising young local players have signed with the Sarnia Legionnaires.

Head coach Mark Davis said Thursday the Jr. 'B' hockey club has added centre Alec DeKoning of Sombra and defenceman Eric Marsh of Wyoming to its roster.

Marsh, a 17-year-old who stands 6'2 and weighs 200 pounds, played Jr. 'C' for the Alvinston Flyers last winter, picking up 20 points (three goals and 17 assists) in 40 games. He also had a playoff goal during six post season contests.

DeKoning, also 17, is a centre who scored 20 goals and set up 25 others while playing 'AAA' midget hockey. He also appeared in three games with the Legionnaires.

They will help fill a few holes for Sarnia, which is losing 10 players to graduation.

Davis described Marsh as a big player who moves the puck well. He also noted Eric was used on the powerplay by the Flyers last year.

As for DeKoning, Davis said, “He has great skills, sees the ice well and skates well. He could be a top centre in our league in a few years.”

Marsh, who attends Lambton Central Collegiate, said he can contribute both offensively and defensively.

DeKoning, who attends St. Pat's High School, said he's a playmaker with strong skating skills.

DeKoning, who stands 5'10 and weighs 175 pounds, added signing with the Legionnaires “is an honour.”

As for his long-term objective in hockey, he said he hopes to eventually play in the NCAA.
