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
