The Premier Division will welcome a new Niagara club in to the ranks for the upcoming 2012 season. With the departure of the Iron Men who gave us two exciting Premier seasons we welcome the Niagara Generals to the Premier level. Team GM Jay Capaldi preparing for the Generals first season in Premier has secured the services of some of the top players in the Niagara region. There will be many familiar faces as the team has many of the stars from the Iron Men that excelled all the way to the Premier finals in 2010. With the season still two months away Capaldi has not sat back signing twenty players to the Generals roster.
Committed for the 2012 Premier season with the Niagara Generals are Forwards Graham Campbell, Darren Chapmen, John Falzoi, Mike Hedden, Tyler McFadden, Justin Moore, Allan Penney, Chris Risi, Eric Tardiff, Rory Unruh and Shane Smith. Defencemen Mark Biamonte, Blake Bishop, Jeremy Courtney, Lance Gallagher, Dale Matthews, Dan Ruddach and Steve Walters. Goaltenders Bram Leggat and Greg Serniak.
With a lineup that has sixteen players with Premier experience the squad will not be caught flat footed by the speed or intensity of the division. Good Luck to Jay Capaldi and the entire General’s club on the upcoming Premier session.
