Cornwall Ontario – The River Kings have added another big, tough defenceman, and it’s a name local hockey fans are quite familiar with.
Simon Desormeaux, the former Cornwall Comets and Akwesasne Warriors defenceman, has come to terms with the Cornwall River Kings.
The 38-year-old last played in 2011-12 for the Warriors in the Federal Hockey League. In 18 games, he had 9 assists and 75 penalty minutes.
Desormeaux has several years of experience in the LNAH as well. He last suited up for the Thetford-Mines Isothermic in 2008-09. He has also played for the Verdun Dragons and St. Jean Chiefs.
He is expected to be in the lineup next weekend.
