Following a disappointing Major Midget season and a winless Major Bantam year, the Cambridge Hawks are looking at their latest import players to help turn their fortunes around.
The Cambridge Hawks, in my opinion, have long been at a disadvantage when it comes to developing and keeping top tier players in their AAA program. It has nothing to do with the work they do, but it has to do with where they are located geographically. Many top players in the past, would prefer to play in either Kitchener or Waterloo because of their track record for developing OHL level talent. With the 2015/16 roster, that trend seems to be changing.
This years team includes five players who played their AAA Bantam hockey in either Kitchener or Waterloo with the most important one of them being goaltender Ben Coveny. Coveny was a member of a Jr. Ranger team that allowed an average of under two goals a game last season. Add in goal scorers Kolton Mooney, Kevin Quinn and Grant Ramsay and the Hawks could do damage this season.
The big question mark will come from their depth players, some of which haven’t played at the AAA level in the past. There are more than one Single-A callups and even an former Minor Development forward on the roster this year. It will be interesting to see if the experience factor overwhelms the new additions this season.
The Hawks will open up their season with a home date versus the Huron-Perth Lakers.
