MADOC TOWNSHIP, ON – Tuesday October 4, 2022:  A local Junior C hockey game will have a new venue and a great cause behind.

Frankford Huskies Director of Operations Frank Robinson has announced a partnership with the Municipality of Centre Hastings and Madoc Township, for a P.J.H.L Regular Season game on Monday October 17th.

“On two separate occasions, strong storms swept through central Hastings County, causing a lot of devastation.  Trees, barns, and homes were heavily damaged by overbearing wind,” says Robinson.  “We talked with Quinte West Mayor Jim Harrison about how we could assist residents and he went to work.  He contacted Centre Hastings Mayor Tom Deline and Madoc Township’s Loyde Blackburn.  We decided that hosting a game at Madoc Arena an providing the proceeds of the game was the best way to do so.”

Tom Deline continued, “The Frankford Huskies talked to us about raising money and awareness for those affected by the storms in our community.  We cannot wait for the game, the funds raised, and the promotion that will come out of the game.  There seems to be something about this community that makes it one of a kind.  Hastings County has 14 municipalities, but when it comes down to it, we are one.  We look forward to the Port Hope Panthers and Frankford Huskies supporting our citizens.”

Frankford Coach Pat Shearer says, “We are one big community around the Bay of Quinte.  In fact, four of our players call Madoc home.  Karsten and Heiden Leonard, Phoenix Smith (not pictured) and Tyler Sawkins will be playing this game in their home rink and they are very excited.”

The game will be taking place at 6:50 p.m. at Madoc Arena on Cooper Road.  The doors will open at 5:30 pm, with a 50/50, silent auction, and pre-game ceremony set to take place.

All tickets are $10 and only available at the door.

NOTE:  Those with season tickets can get in by presenting their tickets at the door, but are invited to make a donation for storm victims.
