It all starts tonight at the Dave...

Post by Ron » Mon Sep 10, 2018 2:17 pm

The new edition of the Hamilton Kilty Bees takes the ice tonight at the Dave Andreychuk arena against the Pelham Panthers.

It's a young team versus a club with a lot of returning players.

The Kilty's have no 20-year olds, 2 nineteen-year olds and 5 18-year olds. One player is 15-Mark Duarte. There are four carryovers from the Ancaster Avalanche.

The Panthers welcome back ten players from last years club which finished just one point behind Welland. They have 5 20-year olds including Caledonia Corvairs 'keeper last season- Brandon McCorriston. There are three 19-year olds on the team.

I hope the Kilty's are not expecting a walkover because- 'it's just Pelham'!

Great start to the season - the HockeyTV broadcast was cancelled.

Pelham would not allow them to broadcast the game on HockeyTV.

Full marks to the Kilty's for putting on a good home opening show. Live music, light show, giveaways, prizes great PA system/ scoreboard, puck drop by the Mayor etc. Over 400 fans in attendance, though I thought there was going to be more. Good to meet some old friends from the original Kilty fans! Only two negatives and you might call this nitpicking- why did they play the national anthem of both countries before the game? and it would have been nice if the PA announcer had tried to familarize himself with the players names etc. before the game started- it was a bit embarrasing, also he announced the Pelham player with the Kilty number a couple of times.

Believe over fees not paid out to them for Fast Hockey last season

I'm told that's not true. Hamilton had it set up for Wifi, but it has to be plugged into the internet directly.

Good to hear that it was on a technical issue instead
