OHL exhibition game coming to Cornwall

CORNWALL, Ontario – For the second year in a row, the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) will be holding an exhibition game in Cornwall before the start of their regular season.

Taking place on Labour Day, Sept. 2, the Kingston Frontenacs will be facing off against the Ottawa 67’s in the Cornwall Civic Complex’s Ed Lumely Arena.

“The exhibition game is a chance to see some great junior hockey right in our backyard for an affordable price,” explained Cornwall’s Tourism Coordinator Kevin Lajoie. “It’s the second year in a row that Kingston and Ottawa visit Cornwall on Labour Day so it’s becoming a bit of a tradition.”

The 67’s General Manager James Boyd said that his team is looking forward to being back in Cornwall.

“The 67’s are excited to return to Cornwall to take on the Frontenacs in a first-class venue,” Boyd said.

Both the Frontenacs and the 67’s were longtime rivals of the Cornwall Royals, Cornwall’s popular former OHL team.

“Cornwall has a rich history in major junior hockey with the Royals, so in a small way it’s also a chance to celebrate and remember that,” Lajoie said.

Tickets are $9.50 for adults and $6.50 for children under the age of 12. They are available now at the Cornwall Civic Complex Box Office or online through ticketpro.

Tickets will also be available at the box office on game day. The box office opens at 12 p.m. and the puck drops at 2 p.m.
