Dave Ezard to be Honoured at Colts’ Final Regular Season Home Game
“Where sales are built on service”
By David Murphy
he Cornwall Colts will pay tribute to Cornwall hockey icon Dave Ezard in the pre-game ceremony at their final regular season home game on Thursday, March 8th.
L’Heritage Junior Girls Crowned EOSSA Champions
’Héritage’s junior girls volley-ball team is once again Division A SDG Champs, and EOSSA Champions. The team had a perfect league season with a record of 22-0 and a season record of 33-1. They will head to EOSSAA February 21st in Russell. The team won both SDG and EOSSAA championships last year.
A new banner will be unveiled recognizing Ezard’s retired number 6. The original banner dedicated to Ezard disappeared from the Civic Complex a few seasons ago. Ezard patrolled the blueline for his hometown Royals from 1975-1980 including earning the 1980 Memorial Cup MVP. He was the first Quebec league defenceman to score 40 goals (105 points) in 1979-80. Sadly, Ezard passed away at the young age of 36 in 1995. Shortly after, the Cornwall Colts retired Ezard’s number 6 and unveiled a
banner that hung from the rafters at the Si Miller Arena and then the Ed Lumley Arena. Members of Ezard’s family and former teammates will be in Front row (left to right): Geneviève Grigg, Colina Manson-Lundy, attendance for the rededication Audrey Millette, Olivia Haley, Liane Hurtubise, Gianna Drugea ceremony on March 8th.
