Caledonia Loads Up With Two 20 Year-Olds – by C. Scott Holland
As of Thursday, Jan. 7th, the Caledonia Corvairs had made two moves adding two 20 year-olds to their roster.
In their first unexpected move, the Corvairs acquired Pelham Panthers goaltender Corey Foster. Foster is in his rookie GOJHL year and has appeared in only nine contests. His record is 0-9 and he has 6.35 gaa. Foster stands a 6′ 2″ and weighs 190 lbs. and is a Stoney native. He will be the Covairs third goaltender and wear #1.
On Thursday, the Corvairs added veteran OHL player Tyler Hill (photo), a Hagersville, Ont. resident who has toiled for the Guelph Storm from 2013/14 to 2015/16. During the 6’6″ forward’s time with the Storm he played in 148 games, and scored 26 times while assisting on 38 tallies for 64 points along with 142 penalty minutes. Hill was originally drafted by the Ottawa 67s in the fifth round of the 2011 Priority Draft.
The additions brings Caledonia’s roster total to 26 players, and obviously the team will have to make some moves before the trade deadline of Jan. 10th.
Caledonia, despite losing just a single game this season in regulation time, is beefing up its roster in an attempt to win its third straight Sutherland Cup, a feat unaccomplished by any team in history since the Cup’s inception in 1934.
