SIJHL on Junior Council Agenda June 4, 2012 7:36 AM

Last Week TJHN reported that the SIJHL and NOJHL have agreed in principal to play some cross over games in season as well as participate in a joint showcase event.

All of that depeneds on two meetings, at least it depends on if the SIJHL teams based in the US may particiapte. SIJHL president Ron Whitehead said Friday his league’s annual general meeting — originally slated to be held this weekend in Thunder Bay — was postponed until later this month to give the Duluth Clydesdales, Wisconsin Wilderness and Iron Range Ironheads time to attend both events

TJHN has spoken to Iron Range Ironheads ownership several times. Ownership has assured TJHN that the team has been reorganized and they have narrowed their search for a head coach down to a few candidates.

The larger problem for the SIJHL may be the status of the Thunder Bay North Stars, majority owners, David Dubinsky and Ken Perrier, have yet to sit down with the investors to discuss financial plans for next season. Although planing to hold try out camps in July, the North Stars have yet to remove the "interim" tag to head coach Lonny Bohonos.

Strengthening their position as a development league, the Fort Francis Lakers lost highly-touted forward Jordan Larson last week when he was drafted by the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League. A timely example for the league to show that they are developing talent to move on to higher levelers. This news is what the Junior Council will want to hear this week.
