Barons Getting Hot


It has been a long time since the Hanover Barons beat the Wingham Ironmen but on Saturday night in front of a crowd of 580 fans at the Mildmay Arena the Barons beat the Ironmen 5-4. The previous night in Walkerton the Barons played quite well but came up short losing 5-2 to the Walkerton Hawks.

On Saturday night in Mildmay there was no scoring in the opening period although the Barons did outshoot the Ironmen 11-9. The Barons struck early in the second period when team captain and Mildmay native Tyson Soers put the Barons ahead only 33 seconds into the period and the Barons were never behind in the game although it did get close in the third period. Assisting on the Soers goal was another Mildmay native Jarrett Kuntz and Durham native Justin Graham. The Barons built a 3-1 lead in the second period when Ben Watson and Wendel Cameron scored with assists going to Lucas Johnson, Lukas Heathers, Denver Hill and newcomer Kyler Jones. Wingham rookie Holdyn Lansink replied for the Ironmen. Denver Hill made it 4-1 Barons early in the third assisted by Brad Pitt. Wingham then scored twice in a minute and nineteen seconds to make it 4-3 at 9:11 of the third. At 10:15 Barons rookie defenseman and another Mildmay native Colton Culbert made it 5-3 assisted by Brodie Lemay. The Ironmen added one more at 13:26 and did make it close at the end with the goalie on the bench but the Barons weathered the storm and finished with a 5-4 win. Third period Ironmen scorers were Jordan Skerrett, Justin Jacklin and Ryan McNeil. Cody van der Heide play well in the Hanover goal with shots on goal being 34-34 was indicative of the very close and well played game.

On Friday night in Walkerton the Barons again played well outshooting the league leading Hawks 41-29 but could not find the back of the net. The Hawks opened the scoring on a first period power play goal by Mitch Borden and followed up in the second period with two more by Lauchin Elder and Calvin Penney scoring on a penalty shot. The Barons finally got on the scoreboard at 3:26 of the third period when Justin Graham connected on a power play assisted by Garrett Reed and Jarrett Kuntz. Another power play goal at 7:52 by Baron Garrett Reed made it 3-2 and it looked like the comeback was on but at 14:42 Calvin Penney scored on another power play and it was Penney who put one in the empty net for the 5-2 Walkerton win. Gord Walmsley was in goal for the Barons and certainly held the Barons in the game until late in the final period. On the power play the Barons were 2 for 7 and the Hawks were 2 for 4.

Baron’s next home game is Saturday November 1 at the P&H Centre at 8:00 when the much improved Goderich Flyers play the Barons.

Pink In The Rink A Huge Success

Pink In the Rink Game in Mildmay a Huge Success on and off the Ice


The Hanover Barons had a very successful sojourn to Mildmay Saturday, where they hosted the Wingham Ironmen.  With a combined 12 players from South Bruce on both teams, a virtual sell-out crowd watched the Barons win a thrilling 5-4 victory over the Ironmen.   The incredible support from the South Bruce fans was very much appreciated by both teams.

The Barons were playing with heavy hearts, after learning of the death of long-time Barons Equipment Manager Ron Stephen’s wife Robyn this week.  The team dedicated last night’s game to her memory and played with a level of passion

The team wore Pink Jerseys last night to help raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer and helped raise almost $1500 for the cause.

A huge thank you to everyone for making the night a big success.

Barons Ready For New Season

The word new comes up a lot for the Hanover Barons heading into the Junior C season.

A new logo, new shirts, coaches and some players look to turn around a team that finished in last place a year ago.

Head coach Mike Orr says there is hope a new goaltending duo can help change their fortunes and Cody van der Heide has looked good early.

“He’s looked quite good. And Gordon Walmsley played a game in Kincardine and was very solid.”  And Orr says the bulk of last years forwards are back, including top scorer Justin Graham.  “Our forward group is largely the same as last year. So we’re counting on them to continue to develop. I think they ended on a pretty high note last year.”

On the defensive side the Barons are very impressed with the early play of 16 year old defenseman Colton Culbert.

The Barons open up their 2014-2015 season at home against Walkerton on Friday, September 12 at 8:00pm

Interview with Head Coach Mike Orr May 20th 2014


The Hanover Barons Jr. C Hockey Club are pleased to release our new logo, which will make it’s debut on our jerseys for the 2014-15 hockey season.  The new logo concept was designed by Renee van der Heide of Hanover, who won a logo design contest the team held, beating out 29 other designs.

“ We are very excited about our new logo, which incorporates the Knight/Baron into a hockey concept that is both attractive and stylish.  I think our players and the public will really like the new look.” said Hanover Barons President Brent Meyers.

On the shoulders of the Jersey will be a “Flaming B” to signify a slogan adopted by the team last year, “The B’s are Hot.”   The design of the Flaming B was done by Mike Meyers of Hanover.

“ The new look is a natural evolution for us.  It was time for a refresh on our logo.  We are getting new jerseys this fall and wanted to have our new look on them.  It’s a new and exciting era for the Hanover Barons, as we are excited about the direction our team is headed in, both on and off the ice.  This will add to that excitement, as we chase our ultimate goal of winning the league championship.”  said Hanover Barons Director of Hockey Operations Terry Whiteside.
