More for the Monarchs

July 13, 2014

Another day, another set of players.

Make that six more skaters for the new MC Monarchs of the Midwest Jr. Hockey League.

Monarchs owner-general manager Mark Gilman has confirmed to that the MWJHL expansion team has added homegrown Michigan products David Hogan, Mitchell Krust, Matthew Snyder, Trevor McCoy, Josh Long and Bailey Rietman to its growing roster.

Krust, Snyder and McCoy are all defencemen. Long can play defence and forward. Rietman and Hogan are both forwards.

“I have to say that (Monarchs head coach) Jason McCrimmon has become our own pied piper of hockey talent in Michigan,” said Gilman, who is never short on words.

“For a previously-unknown team to be able to draw now a total of 15 talented players by mid-July is pretty fantastic. I can’t say enough about how Jason has worked the phones and leveraged his relationships to bring in some pretty good talent from across Michigan that will serve as a core of our team this season,” added Gilman.

The signing of the six new players comes shortly after MC added a trio of MWJHL vets in a trade with the rival Detroit Fighting Irish, acquiring high-scoring forward Anthony Wojciechowski, young defenceman Jarrad Vroman and goalie Tyler Skulley in a cash exchange.

What you think about “More for the Monarchs”

  1. FYI
    A family friend from down State has a nephew who has had the privilige to play for Coach McCrimmon and he cannot say enough about what a good menter and teacher that Coach McCrimmon is to so many young Players.

  2. Looks like one of the Monarchs’ biggest fans this year will be Irish American. No one apparently is more fixated on the team’s activities and leadership. I’m sure the team appreciates your numerous comments, predictions and personality assessments on every one of their announcements. Fixated much?

  3. to you Monarch fans – don’t you get it ??? I am just trying to stir up a little freindly rivalrey between the 2 Teams. If you don’t get that then you have no sense of humor.
