Against Montague Maniacs
ABRAM-VILLAGE – The Arsenault’s Fish Mart Western Red Wings will be the final Island Junior Hockey League team to play its home opener on Saturday.
The Montague Maniacs will visit the Evangeline Recreation Centre for the 7 p.m. start.
Last year’s regular-season most valuable player Jeremy Balderston is expected to lead the Red Wings this season, and a big year is also expected from veteran goaltender Chris Gallant.
A media release notes the Red Wings have been very pleased with newcomers Willie and Benjie Gaudet of Tignish, Nathan Ellis of Ellerslie and Robbie Fraser of Alberton.
In fact, the Red Wings have many new faces on this year’s roster, and fans can expect to see a younger team this season.
