WITH WAXERS ON WINNING STREAK
A short staffed Waxers squad
travelled to Thornhill just 24 hours after a hard fought home victory over
North York and extended their winning streak to a season high 4 games with
a 5-4 victory. The Waxers are now off until January, 2004.
OLD TIME HOCKEY
Not since the days of
Tompkins, Doucette, Stoyan et al has there been a Friday as wild as the
one between North York and Markham that ended the week long home and home
series. The Waxers finished the way they started it - victorious -
as a strong and gutsy effort resulted in a 3-1 win for the Blue and White.
For the first time in who
knows how long, the Markham Waxers completed a perfect weekend as they up
ended the North York Rangers by a 5-3 score Sunday in North York. The same two teams go at again Friday in Markham. [recap].
OUTBURST POWERS WAXERS
The Waxers took little time in
creating the opportunity for the fans in attendance to "Toss their
Teddy Bears", scoring just under 3minutes in to the game en route to
a 5-1 first period lead. The Waxers cruised the rest of the way to a
6-3 victory over visiting Pickering on Triple Event Night. [recap].
WRIGHT AND GET RITCHIE
The Waxers are pleased to
announce that they have signed 20 year old veteran winger Steve Ritchie.
Formerly of the Brampton Capitals, Ritchie is a left winger who has a
history of producing points in the OPJAHL West Division. Also,
Markham welcomes the return of Daniel
Torres to the lineup as he had recently been called up by the OHL
London Knights. Both players will be in the lineup on Friday,
December 12th. In an unrelated move, Markham has moved veteran defenseman
Jamie Wright to the West Division
Hamilton Jr Red Wings.
WAXERS SUCCUMB TO
FIRST PLACE BUZZERS
The Waxers and Buzzers played
another classic Markham-St Mike's game Sunday as the home Buzzers skated
off with an 8-5 victory. After leading 6-0, the Buzzers watched as
the Waxers made it 6-4 then appeared to make it 7-5 only to have the goal
waved off and the Buzzers returned up the ice to score the 8th goal.
A wild affair with lots of goals, hits, scrums and tense words between the
MARKHAM MAKES MOST OF
FIRST BUS TRIP
Markham travelled to
Collingwood for their only Friday night road game and came back with 2
points as they defeated the Blues 4-2. An overwhelming effort by the
Waxers that was only kept close by the stellar goalkeeping in the
Collingwood end. [recap]
TWO TO THE OHL
Markham is pleased to announce
that two of their 1986 born players are on their way "up the hockey
ladder" to the OHL. Daniel
Torres, a 2002 Draft pick of the London Knights, has been
released by the Waxers to join the Knights for the remainder of the
2003-04 season. Torres worked extremely hard in the off season and
so far in 2003 with the Waxers collecting 11 goals and 11 assists in 25
games. The Waxers are pleased that London has rewarded Torres for
his vast improvement by signing him for the rest of the season.
Goaltender Anthony Guadagnolo,
a 2003 Draft selection of the Ottawa 67s will be joining the 67s
from December 7 for an indefinite amount of time as the Ottawa goalie
(Lukas Mensator) attends the World Junior Championship (In a related move,
goalie Greg van't Hof has returned
to the Waxer team). The Waxers wish Daniel and Anthony the best of
luck as they join the long list of Waxer Alumni who have gone on to play
in the OHL.
