Category: Latest News

Sturgeon Falls Ontario- The Lumberjacks had a very tough weekend dropping two straight games to the powerful Temiscaming Titans and Almaguin Spartans, two of the GMHL’s top teams. The Jacks on Friday night lost to the Titans by a score of 7-2, and followed it up with a lack luster performance Saturday in South River vs the Spartans in a 6-2 loss. Coach Lui Ricci had this to say about the weekend.


“Friday in Temiscaming one player beat us, and he had 5 points, despite the 7-2 score the game was very close, and we skated with them until the end. However tonight in South River we had no jump no fire, and the boys know it, our team has made tremendous strides in the past 3 weeks and they are probably more mad at themselves then anything, we need to be much better in our own zone, our only bright spot tonight was Ted Bunting, he made the saves he should have made, The boys need to regroup for next weekend as we expect the 4 points I have tremendous faith in this group they have tremendous character”


The Lumberjacks got points on the weekend from Captain Aaron Sullivan, Ben Miller, Kyle Wheatheral and Roman Murotov. All Overage players. The Jacks next home game is Friday November 27th vs the Seguin Huskies puck drop is 8:30pm.


ICE Chips: The Lumberjacks have traded Reid Hamilton to the Seguin Huskies, The Jacks in return acquired 1997 birth year players Tristan Archimabault and Luis Mendoza. The Jacks are rumored to be in the hunt for several players from the Ottawa and Stouffville areas currently playing in Hockey Canada leagues.  


Reminder: The Lumberjacks want to remind everyone in the West Nipissing area that on December 12th 2015 vs the Temiscaming Titans will be a very special night.
