Hey folks! I've been away for a few weeks due to being busy and a wonky Cougars home schedule but I'm back for the home stretch.
The Cougars welcome the Bowmanville Eagles to town tonight and will face Adam Place for the first time since he was traded away a few weeks ago. Bowmanville is having a very strong finish to the season and have won five straight heading into tonight's contest - Adam place has 6 points, including two shorthanded goals, during the winning streak.
Cobourg has also played some good hockey lately, picking up 7 points of a possible 10 in their past five games. The new top line of Stefan Thompson, Brooks Behling and James Diminie has been lighting it up with 10 goals over that stretch. Even the energetic Brad Down has been putting points on the board with 4 points in the past five games.
Now that the 16 and 17 year olds are getting some more ice time, this is a good chance to come out and have a look at the young core that should help the Cougars to climb the standings in the coming seasons.
