Around the web ...

The rational move is to take recruiting news on catch-as-catch-can basis. Here's a couple from around the Internets:

  • St. FX announced its men's hockey recruits. The big gets would include five-year Western Hockey League netminder Joey Perricone; defenceman Stephen Simms, who apparently turned down a NCAA scholarship at Lake Superior State; and two players who wore a letter with major junior teams, defenceman Nick Pageau from the Belleville Bulls and forward Ryan Sparling from the Saint John Sea Dogs.

    Personally, Pageau is the most familiar of the lot since he played in Belleville, the unofficial spring team of Kingston Frontenacs fans.

  • Queen's centre Billy Burke (not to be confused with the Queen's Centre, the new campus complex which won't have a hockey arena) has signed with the Port Huron IceHawks in the IHL. Burke, who carried Queen's offensively in a last-ditch bid to squeak into the OUA playoffs, played both football and hockey for the (Golden) Gaels. His parents Denise and Bill run the OHL's Niagara IceDogs.
  • Capital Region Football Blog linked to a Langley Times feature on incoming Ottawa Gee-Gees receiver Chris Robitaille. The 19-year-old is converting from quarterback, which seems to be a thing to do among Ottawa players (leading receiver Cyril Adjeity used to play QB).
Again, if you see anything and are feeling generous, add a link or fire off an e-mail.

The plan is to make the morning roundups a more regular feature once the season starts up.

  1. well you asked if we saw anything, to pass it on. I just saw this.

    TRURO -- The all-time leading scorer with the Truro Bearcats of the Maritime Junior A Hockey League is moving on.

    Left winger Jon Reid, who tallied 189 points during the last three years, has agreed to join the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees.

    Reid, a native of Germany who now resides in St. John's, N.L., had 53 points, including 15 goals, in 50 games with the Bearcats last season. He added 19 points in 16 playoff games.
