The 2016-2017 Midget AA Fort William Hurricanes was selected on Saturday September 17th. It looks like a team mixture of some seasoned veterans,along with a fair number of second year midgets and four rookie players.
There will be three returning Hurricanes, up front will be second year speedy forward Cooper Pytyck, with third year vet Zack Francis patrolling the blue line and tending goal will see Tanner Klein return to the Canes net.
New players wearing the Herk colours will be forwards Alex Zimak, Tanner Saarinen, Richard Crupi, Jonathan Friesen, Kamden Kennedy, Kyle Swerhun, Chase House, on the back end it will be Bryson Ducharme, Finn Rasmussen, Chanson Rollason, Jakob Smeltzer, Anthony Tassone and Eric Wiersema with rookie net minder Tyler Blazino rounding out the balance of the club.
The Midget A's selected their club on Tuesday evening, it was a very long process, due to the fact that TBMHA had to make a tough choice, with blending the Midget A and Midget B divisions for this season, but after it was said and done it seems all the organizations were relatively satisfied.
The Midget A's would see a few players returning to the Herks,Goaltender Bradley Deswiage makes his return after tending goal for the Midget A Fort William Canadiens last season, he played two years as a Bantam Hurricane. Also wearing the burgundy jersey for a third season is rugged forward Jordan Meservia,the speedy forward Brysen Bottoset comes back after playing Bantam AA Neebing Hawks a year ago, the ever ready rabbit Troy Thurier returns with his non stop work ethic after playing Bantam A with the Canes, Mervin Sofea rounds out the returning Herk players. The goaltending was solidified as Jayden Delaqua was selected after two years of Bantam A with the Westfort Maroons, defenseman Travis Lewis returned to the game after taking a couple of years off, the balance of the team has a lot of a great mixture of speed, defence and grit. Justin Caruso, Paul Chapman, Callum Couch, Lewis Chapman, Tyley Quisses, Evan Nieckarz, Duane Sugarhead, Hunter Kuurila and Garret Sheparski.
The Fort William Hurricanes Hockey Club would like to welcome the returning and new players on becoming part of the organization for the up coming season and hope you have a fun and successful year.
