Bordertown Gets a Junior A Team
St. Stephen's new Junior A Hockey Team now has a name---The County Aces.
Club President John Hyslop says the team logo relates to both sides of the border -- with a puck and maple leaf representing Canada, and stars around it for the US.
Hyslop says the Aces were a Bordertown team years ago and the other connection is to the Pennfield airstrip and the training centre for the pilots who became top guns or aces.
Hyslop says Hockey Canada will allow them up to 8 American players on the team and they have already started writing lists of players.
They estimate the Aces 1st exhibition game will be scheduled around September 6th or 7th of this year.
