Local C-K product Adrian Stubberfield, D-man Ryan McKim of Windsor, former Sun County Panthers standout Aleksa Babic and just today, the M’s added blueliner Kaleb Tiessen

Meanwhile, the Blenheim Blades have named veteran forward Alex Cunningham as the team’s next captain. Cunningham was added late last season from Komoka. He is a Chatham-Kent Cyclones and Lambton Jr. Sting alumni.
