from On the Islanders Beat,
The Isles’ arrival was the good news yesterday on the front page of the Moncton Times & Transcript right next to the tragic news of the funerals for three of the four local 16-year-old boys who died in a terrible traffic accident last Saturday. The fourth service will be held today in nearby Beresford, and the Islanders are exploring ways to make a goodwill gesture to aid a community in mourning.
For some, the opening of hockey season will provide an escape from their grief. Moncton has scheduled a Hockey Night in Downtown celebration tonight, featuring a parade led by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police band and players from the Islanders as well as four local university and youth teams. On Saturday, there will be a Road Hockey Challenge for kids ages 5 to 10 to launch the opening of the season for the Wildcats, now coached by Danny Flynn, who was Nolan’s top assistant last season with the Islanders and previously in juniors with Moncton and Sault Ste. Marie.
