CLUB MARKHAM BECOMES THE OFFICIAL FITNESS CLUB OF THE WAXERS
The Markham Waxers are pleased to announce that Club Markham has become the Official Fitness Club of the Markham Waxers.  Situated in the Hilton Suites Hotel at the corner of Warden and Highway 7, Club Markham is a first class facility, with first class staff and all the amenities wanted in a Fitness Club. [details to come]

RILEY HILL OT WINNER SLAYS PANTHERS
Markham earned an exciting overtime victory over the visiting Pickering Panthers thanks to a bullet wrist shot by Riley Hill early in the extra frame.  James and Joel Gaulrapp each had goals for Markham while Leiland Gauley collected 2 assists on the night. [recap]

WAXERS SMOTHERED ON HOME ICE
Markham came out flat in their Rogers TV debut against the Thornhill Thunderbirds and unlike the game before, could not come back from a first period 2-0 deficit.  Goals by David Kostuch and Joel Gaulrapp were not enough as the Waxers drop below .500 with a 3-2 loss to the Thunderbirds. [recap]

SLOPPY SHOOTOUT WON BY WAXERS IN COMEBACK FASHION
Markham staged a comeback tonight to edge the Pickering Panthers by a 6-4 score in what can only be described as a poorly played hockey game.  It was painful to watch from any vantage point in the arena and for Markham, it was the epitome of winning ugly.  Jonas Schell led the way with a two goal effort for the Waxers. [recap]

ROGERS CABLE EXPANDS COVERAGE TO INCLUDE 7 WAXER GAMES
The Markham Waxers and Rogers Cable Television (York Region) are pleased to announce the inclusion of the Markham Waxers in this year's OHA Primetime Broadcast Schedule.  Markham will be featured in a total of 7 games through the year - starting Friday night at home versus Thornhill. [details]

WAXERS RAISE $1900 FOR TERRY FOX RUN
The Markham Waxers combined to raise $1900 worth of pledges for the 2004 Terry Fox Run.  The Waxers participated this year in memory of Etoile Hoult (mother of Brenda Herrington) and Marion Ansell (mother of Merry Clayton) who both recently passed away due to cancer.

The Waxers gather at the start of the Terry Fox Run location in Markham.

ANEMIC POWERPLAY COMES BACK TO HAUNT WAXERS
Missed opportunities in the opening period proved deadly for the Waxers as they squandered numerous powerplays in the opening 20 minutes in a 5-1 loss to the Milton Icehawks at College Weekend.  Leiland Gauley scored the only goal for the Waxers. [recap]

MARKHAM BEATS SPIRIT FOR SECOND STRAIGHT
Another good effort Friday night for the Waxers as they were able to secure their first home victory of the season, 7-4 over visiting Stouffville.  Brett Molnar and Brandon Fackey each bagged their first Jr A goals leading the way for the Markham in the midst of an all-out-of-conference week that ends Saturday. [recap]

WAXERS, O' NEILL EARN FIRST VICTORIES
A solid 60 minute performance by Markham in their first road action of the season saw the team secure their first 2 points of the campaign thanks to a 6-3 victory over Collingwood.  First year goaltender Trevor O'Neill earned his first Jr A victory stopping 29 shots. [recap]

WAXERS DROP ANOTHER
A disappointing start to the season continued Monday in Markham as the Waxers lost to the visiting Tigers by a 5-4 score.  Unable to capitalize on an early 1-0 lead, newcomers Jonas Schell, Shareef Labreche, Brandon Rubeo and James Gaulrapp scored their first Jr A goals in a losing cause. [recap]

WAXERS DROP HOME OPENER
In what was a hotly contested, and downright nasty affair, a third period Riley Hill goal was the all the offense could muster as the Waxers dropped their home opener 4-1 to visiting Wexford.  Two third period powerplay goals, followed by an empty net goal in the dying seconds, proved to be the difference in the game. [recap]

WAXERS RELEASE 2004-05 ROSTER
The Markham Waxers are pleased to release the  2004-05 Opening Night Roster.  The roster features 9 returning players and 14 new faces.  [roster]

WAXERS LOSE FLOWERS TO PETERBOROUGH
The Markham Waxers are excited to announce that Darryl Flowers has signed and joined the OHL Peterborough Petes after a successful free agent tryout.  A devastating loss for the Waxers, but the staff is very proud of Darryl.  Flowers follows in the footsteps of Waxer Alum Greg Chambers who also made the Petes as an undrafted player and went on to a great OHL career. Best of luck with the Petes Darryl!

WAXERS SCHEDULE IS OFFICIAL
The Markham Waxers are pleased to release the Official 2004-05 Regular Season Schedule. The Schedule features 49 games (including College Weekend) and the season gets underway on Friday September 10 when the Waxers host rival Wexford in their home opener.  [schedule]
