Matthew Wollias – Kingston Kestrels Captain
“As captain I am privileged to say that we are not only league champions but we are league champions with a 100% win record. The entire team has worked well as a unit as this is the reason we have dominated this season. I’d personally like to thank each team member for their hard work and the work of our off ice team especially Andy Cooper. I’d also like to mention Matt Clarkson for his unbelievable goal record and Simon Berry for his coaching. We also welcome back Kevin Whiteman as coach as we prepare for the Play Offs. We now aim to win the Play Offs on home ice”
