Cornwall Ontario – The Cornwall River Kings’ top scorer and several fan favourites are among nine veterans who have come to terms with the LNAH team.
Forwards Jean-Philippe Caron, Chris Cloutier, Nicolas Corbeil, Pierre-Luc Faubert and Francis Lessard will be back with the team in 2014-15. Defencemen Doug Andress, Jonathan Jasper of Williamstown and Ryan Sullivan of Cardinal will also return.
Mario Joly, re-acquired during the off-season from Laval, has also come to terms with the River Kings.
“We are pleased with the agreements that have been reached and we will no doubt have a strong team on the ice this season,” said general manager Rick Lalonde.
Contracts are currently being drafted for each player and are expected to be officially signed on Monday. The River Kings expect to sign a few more players prior to training camp.
“Decisions such as these cannot be rushed,” said owner Brock Frost. “We had to make sure the right choices were made from a variety of different levels.”
