Mix of vets, rookies start Junior C Blues season tonight in Grimsby

News Sep 25, 2009 Ancaster News

With 12 returning players, including both the Niagara District rookie of the year and most valuable player, two all star defensemen, plus six key new players, the Dundas Blues open the 2009-10 hockey season on the road today against arch-rival Grimsby.

The Blues return home to the J. L. Grightmire Arena for their Valley Town opener on Tuesday, Sept. 29 against the Glanbrook Rangers at 7:30 p. m. The first 200 fans will receive a gift at the door.

Last week the team announced Dundas native Mike Peters was named team captain.

“You can’t find a harder worker than Mike,” said general manager Steve Aglor. “He deserves the captain sweater. If every player works as hard as Mike does every practice and game we should have a great year.”

The captain starts the season on a line with Cole McNeil, last season’s rookie of the year and number two in team scoring with 50 points. McNeil led the Blues with 28 goals. The two team leaders are paired with BJ Caco, who had 22 points in just 23 games last season.

League MVP Jesse Healy brings his 53 points in 28 games to a line with new addition John Murray and returnee Zac Cosentino. Murray moved back to Ancaster this year after two years playing AAA hockey in Phoenix. He picked up four points, including two goals in the first two preseason games.

Veterans DJ McConnell, Kevin Dowling and Aaron Demain fill out another line, while new additions Sean Malone, Stuart Isnor and Andrew Kolodzky will ice the Blues new “Rookie Line”.

Returning goalie Shawn Krzykala allowed a total of six goals over two preseason games.

Returnees Andrew Clark and Nick Bazinet lead the defense. Joining them are Graeme Brown –who chipped in a couple of preseason points –and Mike Tache. Both have junior hockey experience and are attending McMaster University.
