We are very pleased to have Errico involved in this project. And Burnaby will also give us a big hand, especially in defensive terms which we missed quite a bit last year.

The unknown is always training, as our players are not hockey professionals, and session times are determined by the work and personal commitments of the boys. I repeat, there is a lot of optimism and ambitions as well.”
