We look forward to a successful season playing out of the London Sports Park.
The London Lakers JR A Hockey Club operates a first-class program that is devoted to the development of young hockey players both on and off the ice. You can see our expectations as the LAKERS move into the first season. Modelled after the Halton Raven program that in its second year made the semi-finals, losing in 7 games, 1 step from competing for the Russell Cup Championship. You can be assured that the LAKERS are recruiting for this season with an eye to season and playoff success.
