Junior B Avalanche Press Conference on June 19
Submitted By AMHL on Friday, June 14, 2013
The Ancaster Avalanche Junior B Hockey Club is holding a press conference on Wednesday June 19th at 6:30pm at Morgan Firestone Arena to officially announce the return of Junior hockey to the city of Ancaster.

Date: Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Location: Morgan Firestone Arena Lobby

Time: 6:30PM

 

The Ancaster Avalanche Junior Hockey Club would like to invite you to a press conference on June 19th to officially announce the return of Junior hockey to the city of Ancaster. Join key members of the community at Morgan Firestone Arena at 6:30pm as the move from Stoney Creek becomes official. Team owner, Ron Van Kleef, and Ancaster councillor, Lloyd Ferguson, will be on hand to say a few words about the new team and the benefits for the city.

 

The launch of the Ancaster Avalanche Junior B program became a reality when the former Stoney Creek Junior B Warriors began looking for a new home. The impending move to Ancaster was a no-brainer as the passion and appetite for junior hockey was evident to both owner Ron Van Kleef and the broader hockey community. With all the necessary approvals from the Ontario Hockey Association we have begun to prepare for junior hockey in Ancaster for the first time in 20 years.

 

The Avalanche will compete in the Golden Horseshoe Conference of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League, with the regular season beginning in September. Home games will be played on Thursday and Saturday evenings at Morgan Firestone Arena with the official schedule being announced by August 1st. With new game-day initiatives, community involvement, and a strong on-ice product we hope to create an experience that all Ancaster residents can rally behind.

 

Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to seeing you at Morgan Firestone on June 19th.
