Ripley roots run the deepest.

Logan Stanley was Windsor's first round pick in the OHL Priority Selection. Jamie Huber of the Wingham Ironmen and Holdyn Lansink (son of a former Bulldog captain) also went in Saturday's draft. (submitted photo)

 

The village can't quite claim the rights to Logan Stanley, but many would claim there is a healthy dose of Huron-Kinloss blood in the 6'6", 210-pound defenceman. The 17-year-old was picked 12th overall by the Windsor Spitfires in Saturday's OHL Priority Selection.


Sweet weekend for atoms

The Kincardine Canadian Tire atom Kinucks wrapped up the season with a sweet win at the Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival last weekend. The atom rep Kinucks went undefeated through the annual event, finishing with a perfect 5-0 record topped off by a convincing 5-1 win in the final.

Kincardine opened the round robin portion of the tournament with a game against the South-Huron Sabres Friday morning in Wasaga Beach. Jordan Moulton opened the scoring with a sweet deke before going roof with a backhander. He scored again midway through the period on a high wrist shot from the slot after taking a nice pass from Wilson Shipp. Darcy Scott put this game away after he took a pass from Moulton and made it 3-0 with a five hole tally on a power play. Gordie Reaume had a big game in goal for the Kinucks, blanking the Sabres.

Sticky success ends season

The Kincardine Home Hardware novice Kinucks closed out the 2013-14 hockey season with a fun, exciting win at the Maple Syrup Festival in Elmvale recently.

Kincardine was out of medal contention early at this tourney, dropping the first two games on the tournament. However, the novices went out on a high note, bouncing back with a 6-0 victory on Saturday.

The novice rep Kinucks ended the season with an overall record of 37-15-5. Kincardine won the Regional Silver Stick championship on home ice over the Christmas holidays to qualify for the International Silver Sick tournament. The team appreciated the support from the Kincardine Legion Branch #183, as well as Kincardine Home Hadrware, official team sponsor.
