What you think about “Doug Gilmour’s son in NOJHL”

  1. Just in case anyone was wondering (as unlikely as that is) – no, we have not lost interest in the NOJHL since losing our North Bay entry. We’ve simply added the Battalion and the Voodoos to our roster, and now have 2 ‘local’ Junior teams’ exploits to follow. And the midget Trappers are worth a boo as well. Plenty of good hockey to be seen in the Bay area these days. Best of luck to Chris Dawson and company.
    Cheers all!
