This Thursday, June 30 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. the Niagara-on-the-Lake community centre is hosting an open house for residents to explore activities that take place at town facilities.
New Niagara Predators general manager Andrew Ferlatte and head coach Kevin Taylor will be at the community centre during that time to represent the team that plays their home games at Virgil’s Meridian Credit Union Arena.
Ferlatte and Taylor are looking forward to introducing themselves to the community and to answering questions about the team’s second season in
Dante Massi, the 2021-2022 Niagara Predators forward, has signed a contract to play professional hockey in Sweden for the upcoming season. He’ll be leaving in September for Hagfors, Sweden to play for the Viking Hockey Club. Hagfors is about 330 km northwest of Stockholm.
The speedy 5’7” forward from Niagara Falls joined the Preds last year and led the team in assists, with 59 and points, with 74. Team president and owner Robert Turnbull repeatedly centred out Massi through the season as a team leader, one who was never afraid to dig into the corners for the puck and take on opponents twice his size.
At 22 years old now, the graduate of St. Paul Catholic Secondary School has aged out of the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League (GMHL) and was ineligible to return to the Predators this year.
