O-Town Rebels Welcomed in the East Division

by Scott Ludwig

Local businessman Richard Stallberg teams up with ex pro player Frank Morris opening up a hockey development program in Eastern Ottawa and the surrounding areas. With Frank and Rick’s extensive contacts and experience they have put together a unique program that will allow young hockey players to reach their goals and aspirations. Our second Jr. team will be called the O-Town Rebels playing under the CPJHL. This team is proud to announce its home arena as the Minto Skating Centre. We would like to thank the owners for supporting and endorsing our junior team and giving us a place to call home.

The O-Town Rebels are currently developing their website. Follow them on Twitter @OTownRebels
