Legionnaires Held Annual Spring Mini Camp
May 5, 2015



By Dan McCaffery

Close to 100 players showed up for the annual Sarnia Legionnaires spring mini-camp over the weekend.

General manager Bob Williamson said the total included 18 goalies, many from the Toronto area.

So much talent was on hand, in fact, that Williamson came away from the three-day event convinced that the 2015/16 edition of the local Jr. 'B' hockey will be highly competitive.

Originally, it was feared the Legionnaires might face a tough season next winter because they are losing 10 players to graduation.

But Williamson said, “It looks like we may only have to retool, rather than rebuild. We had a lot of really good, young, up-and-coming players show up who will make the Legionnaires strong for years to come. And we've got a lot of local talent.”

In addition to the large pool of Sarnia-Lambton skaters who were on hand for event, players came from the United States and across Ontario. “We had them from as far away as North Bay,” Williamson said.

New head coach Mark Davis was equally enthusiastic.

"We had a great camp, with a lot of good, young guys,” he said.

The club also announced it will hold a Mother's Day season ticket sale on Saturday, May 9 at the Royal Canadian Legion on Front Street.

Season passes will be on sale from 2 p.m to 5 p.m for $150, or the same price as last year.

Reserved seating will be available at no extra price, if purchased before June 30. After that date, it will cost $20 extra to reserve a seat for the season.
